By means of algebraic, analytical and majorization theories, and under the proper hypotheses, we establish several Jensen type inequalities involving γth homogeneous polynomials as follows: k=1mwkf(Xk)/f(In)[f(k=1mwkXkγ)/f(In)]1/γ, k=1mwkf(Xk)/f(Nn)[f(k=1mwkXkγ)/f(Nn)]1/γ, and k=1mwkf*(Xk)f*(k=1mwkXk), and display their applications.
