Inequalities for characteristic functions involving Fisher information
Comptes Rendus. Mathématique, Volume 344 (2007) no. 5, pp. 327-330.

We establish several inequalities for characteristic functions (Fourier transform of probability densities) in terms of the Fisher information. As applications, we illustrate their significance in estimating the survival probability of a quantum state (Schrödinger wave function).

Nous établissons plusieurs inégalités concernant les fonctions caractéristiques (les transformées de Fourier des densités de probabilité) à l'aide de l'information de Fisher. En application, nous montrons la signification des ces inégalités dans l'estimation de la probabilité de survie d'un état quantique (fonction d'onde de Schrödinger).
