**Academic Editor:**J. Zhang

#### Abstract

A generalized lemmas is proved and several new inequalities for differentiable co-ordinated convex and concave functions in two variables are obtained.

#### 1. Introduction

Let be a convex function and with ; we have the following double inequality: This remarkable result is well known in the literature as the Hermite-Hadamard inequality for convex mapping.

Since then, some refinements of the Hermite-Hadamard inequality on convex functions have been extensively investigated by a number of authors (e.g., [1â€“4]).

A modification for convex functions which is also known as coordinated convex functions was introduced as follows by Dragomir in [5].

Let us consider the bidimensional interval in with and ; a mapping is said to be convex on if the inequality holds for all , , and .

A function is said to be coordinated convex on if the partial mappings , and , are convex for all and .

A formal definition for coordinated convex functions may be stated as follows.

*Definition 1. *A function is said to be convex on coordinates on if the inequality
holds for all , , , , and .

Dragomir in [5] established the following Hadamard-type inequalities for coordinated convex functions in a rectangle from the plane .

Theorem 2. *Suppose that is convex on the coordinates on . Then one has the inequalities as follows:
*

Some new integral inequalities that are related to the Hermite-Hadamard type for coordinated convex functions are also established by many authors.

In ([6], 2008), Alomari and Darus defined coordinated -convex functions and proved some inequalities based on this definition. In ([7], 2009), analogous results for -convex functions on the coordinates were proved by Latif and Alomari. In ([8], 2009), Alomari and Darus established some Hadamard-type inequalities for coordinated log-convex functions.

In ([9], 2012), Latif and Dragomir obtained some new Hadamard type inequalities for differentiable coordinated convex and concave functions in two variables which are related to the left-hand side of Hermite-Hadamard type inequality for coordinated convex functions in two variables based on the following lemma.

In ([10], 2012), analogous results which are related to the right-hand side of Hermite-Hadamard type inequality for coordinated convex functions in two variables were proved by SarÄ±kaya et al. based on the following lemma.

where is as given in Theorem 8.*

In [11], Ozdemir et al. established some Simpsonâ€™s inequalities for coordinated convex functions based on the following lemma.

Lemma 11. *Let be a partial differentiable mapping on in with and . If , then the following equality holds:

Theorem 12 (see [11]). *Let be a partial differentiable mapping on . If is convex on the coordinates on , then the following equality holds:

In this paper, a generalized lemma is proved and several new inequalities for differentiable coordinated convex and concave functions in two variables are obtained.

#### 2. Lemmas

To establish our results, we need the following lemma.

Multiplying both sides by and using the change of the variable and , which completes the proof.
