A bump and small (½ cm) tear to bottom spine edge. VG. 23x15cm, x, 306 pp, Series: MAA Problem Books Series. Contents: Starting with Cauchy; The AM-GM inequality; Lagrange's identity and Minkowski's conjecture; On geometry and sums of squares; Consequences of order; Convexity-the third pillar; Integral intermezzo; The ladder of power means; Hölder's inequality; Hilbert's inequality and compensating diffculties; Hardy's inequality and the flop; Symmetric sums; Majorization and Schur convexity; Cancellation and aggregation. ["Michael Steele describes the fundamental topics in mathematical inequalities and their uses. Using the Cauchy-Schwarz inequality as a guide, Steele presents a fascinating collection of problems related to inequalities and coaches readers through solutions, in a style reminiscent of George Polya, by teaching basic concepts and sharpening problem solving skills at the same time. Undergraduate and beginning graduate students in mathematics, theoretical computer science, statistics, engineering, and economics will find the book appropriate for self-study.
