Inequalities involving the mean and the standard deviation of nonnegative real numbers
Journal of Inequalities and Applications volume 2006, Article number: 43465 (2006)
Let and be the mean and the standard deviation of the components of the vector, where with a positive integer. Here, we prove that if, then for. The equality holds if and only if the largest components of are equal. It follows that is a strictly increasing sequence converging to, the largest component of, except if the largest components of are equal. In this case, for all.
