Title of the invited lecture: Application of basic mathematical inequalities to selected problems in economics
Some of the basic and well known mathematical inequalities are Cauchy-Schwarz-Buniakowsky inequality, weighted arithmetic mean – geometric mean inequality, Hölder inequality, etc. In this talk I present the applications of these inequalities to solving selected optimization problems, with the emphasis on application of basic inequalities to some inventory problems and selected problems in microeconomics.
