Abstract : This paper contains inequalities for the exceptions of permutation-invariant concave functions of the partial sums of nonnegative exchangeable random variables. Two majorization inequalities are derived, and an application in reliability theory is discussed. Keywords: Concave and Schurconcave functions.
