It is common sense that Cauchy-Schwarz inequality is a special case of Hölder inequality. The usual derivation of Minkowski inequality is in terms of Hölder inequality. It would be a surprise if someone showed Hölder inequality would be a consequence of Cauchy-Schwarz inequality, and Hölder inequality and Minkowski inequality were actually equivalent. These facts are less well known. Following this line, equivalence of some other classical inequalities are presented in my talk, including:
- Arithmetic mean-Geometric mean inequality ⇔ Bernoulli inequality;
- Kantorovich inequality ⇔ Wielandt inequality;
- Arithmetic mean-Geometric mean inequality ⇔ Cauchy-Schwarz inequality.
