On a new generalization of Alzer's inequality
Let be an increasing sequence of positive real numbers. Under certain conditions of this sequence we use the mathematical induction and the Cauchy mean-value theorem to prove the following inequality: , where and are natural numbers and is a positive number. The lower bound is best possible. This inequality generalizes the Alzer's inequality (1993) in a new direction. It is shown that the above inequality holds for a large class of positive, increasing and logarithmically concave sequences.
