This is a revision of an earlier Means and Their Inequalities by the present author and Professors Mitrinovic and Vasic. Not only does this book bring the earlier version up to date but enlarges the scope considerably to give a full and in-depth treatment of all aspects of the field. While the mention of means occurs in many books this is the only full treatment of the subject. Outstanding features of the book are the variety of proofs given for many of the basic results, over seventy for the inequality between the arithmetic and geometric means for instance, an exhaustive bibliography and a list of mathematicians who have contributed to this field from the time of Euclid to the present day. Audience: This book is written in a language that not only the expert on the subject will understand and appreciate, but graduate students worldwide as well. Any person with an interest in means and their inequalities should find this book within their comprehension although to fully appreciate all the topics covered a knowledge of calculus and of elementary real analysis is required.
