Bounds for probabilities of unions of events and the Borel–Cantelli lemma
AbstractWe discuss a method which yields new bounds for probabilities of unions of events. These bounds are stronger than the Chung–Erdős inequality and its generalizations. We derive new generalizations of the second part of the Borel–Cantelli lemma. Earlier generalizations are special cases.
