Abstract:
This paper gives upper and lower bounds on the gap in Jensen's inequality, i.e., the difference between the expected value of a function of a random variable and the value of the function at the expected value of the random variable. The bounds depend only on growth properties of the function and specific moments of the random variable. The bounds are particularly useful for distributions that are concentrated around the mean, a commonly occurring scenario such as the average of i.i.d. samples and in statistical mechanics.

Abstract:
Since 1907, the famous Jensen's inequality has been refined in different manners. In our paper, we refine it applying superquadratic functions and separations of domains for convex functions. There are convex functions which are not superquadratic and superquadratic functions which are not convex. For superquadratic functions which are not convex we get inequalities analogue to inequalities satisfied by convex functions. For superquadratic functions which are convex (including many useful functions) we get refinements of Jensen's inequality and its extensions.

Abstract:
Extensions of Bohr's inequality via superquadracity are obtained, where instead of the power p=2 which appears in Bohr's inequality we get similar results when we deal with p≥ 2 and with p≤ 2. Also, via superquadracity we extend a bound for deviation from a Mean Value.

Abstract:
It is nowadays wellknown that Hardy's inequality (like many other inequalities) follows directly from Jensen's inequality. Most of the development of Hardy type inequalities has not used this simple fact, which obviously was unknown by Hardy himself and many others. Here we report on some results obtained in this way mostly after 2002 by mainly using this fundamental idea.

Abstract:
This paper is devoted to some new generalization of Hardytype integral inequalities and the reversed forms. The study is to determine conditions on which the generalized inequalities hold using some known hypothesis. Improvement of some inequalities are also presented.

Abstract:
In this paper, some new generalizations of Jensen's inequality are presented. In particular, upper and lower bounds for the Jensen gap are given and compared analytically and numerically to previously published bounds for both the discrete and continuous Jensen's inequality cases. The new bounds compare favorably to previously proposed bounds. A new method based on a series of locally linear interpolations is given and is the basis for most of the bounds given in this paper. The wide applicability of this method will be demonstrated. As byproducts of this method, we shall obtain some new HermiteHadamard inequalities for functions which are 3convex or 3concave. The new method works to obtain bounds for the Jensen gap for nonconvex functions as well, provided one or two derivatives of the nonlinear function are continuous. The mean residual life function of applied probability and reliability theory plays a prominent role in construction of bounds for the Jensen gap. We also present an exact integral representation for the Jensen gap in the continuous case. We briefly discuss some inequalities for other types of convexity, such as convexity in the geometric mean, and briefly discuss applications to reliability theory.
