On dispersion measures

Javier Martín Pelayo, Gaspar Mayor Forteza, Jaume Suñer Llabrés

Resum


In this paper a new framework for the study of measures of
dispersion for a class of $n$-dimensional lists is proposed. The
concept of monotonicity with respect to a sharpened-type order
is introduced. This type of monotonicity, together with other well
known conditions, allows to create a reasonable and general ambit
where the notion of dispersion measure can be studied. Some
properties are analized and relations with other approaches
carried out by different authors on this subject are established.
