Dear Friends,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I want to find an upper and lower bound for the expected value of the minimum of independent binomial random variables. What paper/book do you suggest for this problem?

In other words, I need to find bounds for E(min(X1,X2,...,Xn)), where Xi 's are independent random variables with binomial distribution.

Thanks in advance.
