Abstract

We extend the recent results of R.~Lata{\l}a and O.~Gu\'edon about equivalence of $L_q$-norms of logconcave random variables (Kahane-Khinchin's inequality) to the quasi-convex case. We construct examples of quasi-convex bodies $K_n \subset \R$ which demonstrate that this equivalence fails for uniformly distributed vector on $K_n$ (recall that the uniformly distributed vector on a convex body is logconcave). Our examples also show the lack of the exponential decay of the ``tail" volume (for convex bodies such decay was proved by M.~Gromov and V.~Milman).
