EXPONENTIAL FAMILIES RELATED TO CHERNOFF-TYPE INEQUALITIES Bor, G.R.Mohtashami;
In this paper, the characterization results related to Chernoff-type inequalities are applied for exponential-type (continuous and discrete) families. Upper variance bound is obtained here with a slightly different technique used in Alharbi and Shanbhag  and Mohtashami Borzadaran and Shanbhag . Some results are shown with assuming measures such as non-atomic measure, atomic measure, Lebesgue measure and counting measure as special cases of Lebesgue-Stieltjes measure. Characterization results on power series distributions via Chernoff-type inequalities are corollaries to our results.
