holds. This double inequality is known in the literature as Hermite-Hadamard’s integral inequality for convex functions. The definition of convex functions and Hermite-Hadamard’s integral inequality (1.2) have been generalized, refined, and extended by many mathematicians in a lot of references. Some of them may be recited as follows.
Theorem 1.1 ([, Theorems 2.2 and 2.3])
- (1)If is a convex function on , then(1.3)
- (2)If for is a convex function on , then(1.4)
Theorem 1.2 ([, Theorems 2.2 and 2.3])
Definition 1.1 ()

Theorem 1.4 ([, Theorem 3.1])
In this paper, we will create some new integral inequalities of Hermite-Hadamard type for functions whose third derivatives are convex.
For establishing some new integral inequalities of Hermite-Hadamard type for functions whose third derivatives are convex, we need an integral identity below.
Lemma 2.1 is thus proved. □
