'This eminently readable book will be treasured not only by students and their teachers but also by all those who seek to make sense of the elusive macrocosm of twentieth-century mathematics.' Zentralblatt MATH
'… pleaseant reading for everyone with a solid real analysis background at undergraduate level, even before reading Pólya-Szegö. In fact, even researchers working on topics close to those in this book can find much to add to their repertoire.' Tamás Erdélyi, Department of Mathematics, Texas A&M University
'The book is special … A large mathematics department with a functional graduate program could easily consider to offer a course based on this book.' Tamas Erdelyi, Journal of Approximation Theory

Buchbeschreibung Cambridge University Press Apr 2004, 2004. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. 227x153x15 mm. Neuware - This lively, problem-oriented text, accessible to anyone who knows calculus, helps readers master the fundamental mathematical inequalities. With the Cauchy-Schwarz inequality as the initial guide, the reader is led through a sequence of fascinating problems whose solutions are presented as they might have been discovered - either by a famous mathematician or by the reader. Alongside these beautiful and surprising results, readers will find systematic coverage of the geometry of squares, convexity, the ladder of power means, majorization, Schur convexity, exponential sums, and the inequalities of Hölder, Hilbert, and Hardy. 318 pp. Englisch.
