# Tight Lower Bound on the Probability of a Binomial Exceeding its Expectation

6 Jun 2013Spencer GreenbergMehryar Mohri

We give the proof of a tight lower bound on the probability that a binomial random variable exceeds its expected value. The inequality plays an important role in a variety of contexts, including the analysis of relative deviation bounds in learning theory and generalization bounds for unbounded loss functions...
