Stokes' theorem, Stein's identity and completeness

Dominique Fourdrinier, William E. Strawderman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We study the relation between Stein's theorem and Stokes' theorem (or the divergence theorem) and show, using completeness of certain exponential families, that they are equivalent, in a certain sense, by using each to prove a version of the other.
