A recent refinement of the classical discrete Jensen inequality is given by Horváth and Pečarić. In this paper, the corresponding weighted mixed symmetric means and Cauchy-type means are defined. We investigate the exponential convexity of some functions, study mean value theorems, and prove the monotonicity of the introduced means.
