## The Cauchy-Schwarz Master Class: An Introduction to the Art of Mathematical Inequalities (Softcover)"This lively, problem-oriented text is designed to coach readers toward mastery of the most 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 one of history's famous mathematicians or by the reader." — From the back cover ## $33.25 |

## Description

This book is published in conjunction with the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) and is part of their **Problem Books** series.

Continued from the back cover: “The problems emphasize the beauty and surprise, but along the way 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.

“The text is accessible to anyone who knows calculus and who cares about solving problems. It is well suited to self-study, directed study, or as a supplement to courses in analysis, probability, and combinatorics.”
