Let be the th power mean of a sequence of positive real numbers, where , and . In this paper, we will state the important background and meaning
of the inequality ; a necessary and
sufficient condition and another interesting sufficient condition
that the foregoing inequality holds are obtained; an open problem
posed by Wang et al. in 2004 is solved and generalized;
a rulable criterion of the semipositivity of homogeneous symmetrical polynomial is also
obtained. Our methods used are the procedure of descending
dimension and theory of majorization; and apply techniques of mathematical analysis and permanents in algebra.
