Most people, when they think of mathematics, think first of numbers and equations-this number (x) = that number (y). But professional mathematicians, in dealing with quantities that can be ordered according to their size, often are more interested in unequal magnitudes that areequal. This book provides an introduction to the fascinating world of inequalities, beginning with a systematic discussion of the relation "greater than" and the meaning of "absolute values" of numbers, and ending with descriptions of some unusual geometries. In the course of the book, the reader wil encounter some of the most famous inequalities in mathematics.
