Abstract: It is shown that the isoperimetric deficit of a convex polygon $ P$ admits a lower bound in terms of the variance of the radii of $ P$, the area of $ P$, and the variance of the barycentric angles of $ P$. The proof involves circulant matrix theory and a Taylor expansion of the deficit on a compact manifold.
