Variational Inequalities for Arbitrary Multivariate Distributions
Upper bounds for the total variation distance between two arbitrary multivariate distributions are obtained in terms of the correspondingw-functions. The results extend some previous inequalities satisfied by the normal distribution. Some examples are also given.
