The case b f a is illustrated in the following figure. The case b f a
In this case, the number ab is the area of the yellow region plus the area of the turquoise region to the left
of the vertical line at a. If we add on the area of the purple region then we obtain the sum of the two

integrals Þ f and Þ f 1 and so

a b The case b f a
In this case the number ab is the area of the yellow region below the horizontal line at b plus the area of
the turquoise region. If we add on the area of the purple region then we obtain the sum of the two
a

integrals Þ f and Þ f 1 and so

function g to obtain Þ0 g Þ0 g 1

This inequality is known as W.H. Young’s inequality. Hint:
Apply the preceding exercise to the function f defined by the equation f x x p 1 for all x 0. The inequality Þ0 f Þ0 f 1

Suppose that f is integrable on the interval 0, 1 and that
