In Buyakovsky's paper he takes the discrete form of what we call Cauchy's inequality as well-known --- he does not acknowledge Cauchy, but his paper is written after Cauchy's. Buyakovsky's proof does not cover the case of general innner products --- in fact it only covers one dimensional integrals.Mike Steelehttp://www-stat.wharton.upenn.edu/~steele/noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6555947.post-8906507954371068232007-04-15T13:20:00.000-06:002007-04-15T13:20:00.000-06:00BTW Gauss was famous for claiming all interesting ...<I>BTW Gauss was famous for claiming all interesting results as his own, or as something "he had thought about"</I><BR/><BR/>...and his extensive diaries (published posthumously) prove that he was telling the truth.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6555947.post-88946022978940593132007-04-10T16:37:00.000-06:002007-04-10T16:37:00.000-06:00Oh, and among Romanian students it was often said ...Oh, and among Romanian students it was often said that CBS is all you ever need in life.
