It is true that there are very many books on inequalities and you have all the right to be bored and tired of them. But we tell you that this is not the case with this one. Just read the proof of Nesbitt's Inequality in the very beginning of the material, and you will understand exactly what we mean.
Every topic is described through various and numerous examples taken from many sources, especially from math contests around the world, from recent contests and recent books, of from (more or less) specialized sites on the Internet, which makes the book very lively and interesting to read for those who are involved in such activities, students and teachers from all over the world.
Don't let the problems overwhelm you, though they are quite impressive problems, study applications of the first five basic inequalities mentioned above, plus the Abel formula, symmetric inequalities and the derivative method. Now relax with the AM-GM inequality - the foundational brick of inequalities. Află mai mult
As you have seen in "Secrets in Inequalities. Volume 1" and also from the title, this volume is about advanced inequalities. The main idea which let us start this project was a book about inequalities. There are many, we have known but we want them organized in a different way. This book will be very well understood by those who have already read Volume 1, and more than this it will be the continuation of the nominated book just like the second part of a trip, a trip in the world of inequalities.
Remarkably, the method of using classical inequalities is left behind the first four methods, because we realize that you can flexibly use this method only after you have already developed a larger horizon in the field of inequalities; and this is true: a solid background in a field is usually needed to find the simplest and the most natural solution to a problem. You will find here good modern approaches to prove inequalities: the mixing variables method (in its general and special forms), the method of analyzing squares, the contradiction method, the method of induction (and again, the above mentioned method of using classical inequalities). As you are already used from previous parts, you have lots of beautiful and hard problems to exercise your skills in using all these methods. Află mai mult
