Cauchy’s Inequality


an inequality for finite sums having the form

It is one of the most important and commonly used inequalities and was proved by A. Cauchy (1821). The integral analog of Cauchy's inequality was established by the Russian mathematician V. la. Buniakovskii, while an important generalization of Cauchy's inequality was made by the German mathematician L. O. Hölder.

If [([z.sub.k]).sub.k [greater than or equal to] 0] is a basis for E and if Cauchy's inequality (8) is satisfied, then [Z.sub.n] is a continuous linear operator on E, orthonormal to [([z.sub.k]).sub.k [greater than or equal to] 0].
In this case, Cauchy's inequality (8) takes the form (see [22])
The basis for H(r) is taken, as before, to be the Appell sequence [([P.sub.n](x)).sub.n [greater than or equal to] 0] which accords to Cauchy's inequality and it is also an absolute basis.
