This classic of the mathematical literature forms a comprehensive study of the inequalities used throughout mathematics. First published in 1934, it presents clearly and exhaustively both the statement and proof of all the standard inequalities of analysis. The authors were well known for their powers of exposition and were able here to make the subject accessible to a wide audience of mathematicians.

Review quote

'In retrospect one sees that 'Hardy, Littlewood and Polya' has been one of the most important books in analysis in the last few decades. It had an impact on the trend of research and is still influencing it. In looking through the book now one realises how little one would like to change the existing text.' A. Zygmund, Bulletin of the AMS "One of the classics of 20th Century mathematical covers lucidly and exhaustively both statement and proof of all the standard inequalities of mathematical analysis."
