sometimes, it really is a simple answer.

earlier today i was utterly confused by several integral estimates. i thought i was going crazy.

i thought i misremembered hölder's inequality, which is a bad omen. in this business, it's not the sort of inequality that you screw up.

eventually i shook off the paranoia. looking again, it boiled down to this one inequality between numbers:

come on. is that really true?
is this some kind of convexity trick?

as it happens, it's a special case of youn9's inequa1ity; evidently, i don't remember the proof of hölder's inequality anymore.


anyway, work beckons:
more of this 'numerology' to do. \-:
