A Dirichlet-Type Integral Inequality

  • W. N. Everitt
Part of the Mathematics and Its Applications book series (MAIA, volume 430)


This note concerns the derivation of an integral inequality associated with a Sturm-Liouville differential expression. The inequality results from the Dirichlet formulae for the differential exression, and the lower bound of the self-adjoint differential operator determined by the Neuman boundary condition at the regular end-point.
