We prove some results for convex combination of nonnegative functionals, and some corollaries are established.
Inequalities have been used in almost all the branches of mathematics. It is an important tool in the study of convex functions in seminormed space and seminormed algebras. Recently some works have been done by Altin et al. [1, 2], Tripathy et al. [1–6], Tripathy and Sarma [3, 4], Chandra and Tripathy , Tripathy and Mahanta , and many others involving inequalities in seminormed spaces and convex functions like the Orlicz function.
In this paper, inequalities for convex combinations of functionals satisfying conditions (a) and (b) are formulated in the theorems, and some corollaries are proved, using the theorems. Condition (a) relates to nonnegative functionals over which the inequalities in Theorems 1.1 and 1.4 on seminorm are proved. In Theorem 1.1, we consider seminormed spaces, and in Theorem 1.4 seminormed algebras. Condition (b) relates generally to the representations between seminormed spaces and seminormed algebras. The inequalities formulated in this way are proved in Corollaries 1.2 and 1.5. In this paper we consider the following generalization of the convexity in seminormed algebras. , where , for , is the norm in , and is a real number.
In order to justify our study, we have provided an example related to real functions of one variable, similar examples can be constructed. This has been used in the geometry of Banach spaces as found in [7, 8]. Similar statements related to functionals in finite-dimensional spaces and countable dimensional spaces have been provided in . These results can be applied in the mentioned areas.
Let and be seminormed spaces over and . Then in Theorem 1.1, one replaces condition (a) by condition (b): , for all with , and all the rest of the conditions are satisfied. Then, with , , , , the inequality is satisfied.
This confirms the assertion.
