Uniform correlation structure and convex stochastic ordering in the Pólya urn scheme
AbstractThis analysis of the Pólya urn scheme focuses on proving two new important results. First, the correlation structure between draws of a Pólya urn scheme is uniform. Second, fixing the number of draws and the composition of the urn, a convex stochastic ordering is induced by the number of balls replaced into the urn.
