Abstract : Document describes The-Gauss-Tchebyshev Inequality for Unimodal Distributions. The determination of a value improves and extends a recent result of Vysochanskii and Petunin who have only considered the case r = 2 with a higher value for k2. The proof is also considerably simpler because it uses the convex structure of the class of unimodal distributions.
