Log-concavity of Hölder means and an application to geometric inequalities

Aurel I. Stan and Sergio D. Zapeta-Tzul

Vol. 12 (2019), No. 4, 671–686
DOI: 10.2140/involve.2019.12.671

The log-concavity of the Hölder mean of two numbers, as a function of its index, is presented first. The notion of α-cevian of a triangle is introduced next, for any real number α. We use this property of the Hölder mean to find the smallest index p(α) such that the length of an α-cevian of a triangle is less than or equal to the p(α)-Hölder mean of the lengths of the two sides of the triangle that are adjacent to that cevian.
