**Inequalities : theory of majorization and its applications**

Even supposing they play a basic position in approximately all branches of arithmetic, inequalities are typically got through advert hoc tools instead of as results of a few underlying ''theory of inequalities. '' For sure sorts of inequalities, the proposal of majorization results in one of these idea that's occasionally tremendous invaluable and robust for deriving inequalities.
