#### Abstract

The authors introduce the concept of the *s*-geometrically convex functions. By the well-known Hölder inequality, they establish some integral inequalities of Hermite-Hadamard type related to the *s*-geometrically convex functions and apply these inequalities to special means.

#### 1. Introduction

*Definition 1.2 (see [1]). *A function is said to be -convex if
for some , where , and .

Theorem 1.4 ([3], Theorems 2.3 and 2.4). *Let be differentiable on , , . If is convex on , for , then

**Now we introduce the definition of the -geometrically convex function.*

*Definition 1.8. *A function is said to be a geometrically convex function if

*Definition 1.9. *A function is said to be a -geometrically convex function if
