## Abstract

We prove a concentration inequality for the ^{n}_{p} norm on the ^{n}_{p}sphere for p, q > 0. This inequality, which generalizes results of Schechtman and Zinn (2000), is used to study the distance between the cone measure and surface measure on the sphere of ^{n} _{p}. In particular, we obtain a significant strengthening of the inequality derived by Naor and Romik (2003), and calculate the precise dependence of the constants that appeared there on p.
