NOTE ON DISPERSION OF $X^\alpha$D. Banjevi\'c and D. Braticevi\'cMatematicki fakultet, Beograd, YugoslaviaAbstract: Some inequalities for moments of $X^\alpha$, $0<\alpha\leq 1$, $X$ nonneg.\ r.\ v., are presented, for example $DX^\alpha\leq (DX)^\alpha$, $DX^\alpha\leq (DX)/(EX)^{2(1\alpha)}$, $$ (EX)^\alphaEX^\alpha\leq (1\alpha)(DX)/(EX)^{2\alpha}. $$ It is proved that $nD\overline X_n^\alpha\to\alpha^2(DX)/(EX)^{2(1\alpha)}$, $n\to\infty$, where $X_1,X_2,\dots,X_n$ are i. \i d. r.\ v.\ and $\overline X_n= (X_1+X_2+\dots+ X_n)/n$. The estimation of $\sqrt{EX}$ is considered, and for binominal case some numerical evaluations are given. Keywords: nonnegative random variables, inequalities for moments, unbias estimation, binomial distribution Classification (MSC2000): 60E15, 62F10; 62F11, 62F12 Full text of the article:
