In (5), isn't the coefficient 4 in front of the sum missing?

Er, yeah. Well caught :-) Terry 19:51, 26 February 2009 (UTC)
I am afraid now the coefficient 16 is missing! ;-)
Also, with the illiterates like myself in mind, could you drop several words of motivation for (3) and (6)? Thanks!
One more thing. The conclusion of Lemma 1 involves expectation, but there is nothing random in the assumptions! What does the lemma actually say?
