Abstract: A new proof of the log-concavity of the Jacobi theta function, appearing in the Fourier representation of the Riemann $ \Xi $ function, is presented. An open problem, involving the normalized moments of log-concave kernels, is investigated. In particular, several Turán-type inequalities are established.
