# Local fractional Newton’s inequalities involving generalized harmonic convex functions

## Abstract

A new auxiliary result based on a three step quadratic kernel utilizing the concepts of local fractional calculus is obtained. Using this new auxiliary result we have several new Newton type inequalities whose power q of local fractional derivative in modulus is a generalized harmonic convex function.

## Introduction

The following result is well known in the literature as error estimation, Simpson’s second formula.

### Theorem 1.1

Let$$\varphi :[c,d]\rightarrow \mathbb{R}$$be a four times continuously differentiable mapping on$$(c,d)$$and$$\| \varphi ^{(4)}\| _{\infty }=\sup_{x\in (c,d)}| \varphi ^{(4)}|<\infty$$, then

\begin{aligned} & \biggl\vert \frac{1}{8} \biggl[\varphi (c)+3\varphi \biggl( \frac{2c+d}{3} \biggr)+3\varphi \biggl(\frac{c+2d}{3} \biggr)+\varphi (d) \biggr]- \frac{1}{d-c} \int _{c}^{d}\varphi (x)\,\mathrm{d}x \biggr\vert \\ & \quad \leq \frac{1}{6480} \bigl\Vert \varphi ^{(4)} \bigr\Vert _{\infty }(d-c)^{5}. \end{aligned}

This result is also known as a Newton type of inequality. Since these results have wide applications in the pure and applied sciences, this topic attracted considerable attention of several mathematicians. Some researchers focused on new Simpson type inequalities based on a two step quadratic kernel and Simpson’s second type results based on three step quadratic kernel via different classes of functions. For example, Alomari et al.  provided Simpson type inequalities via s-convex functions and they also gave some applications to special means and numerical quadrature rules. Sarikaya et al.  gave some new inequalities of Simpson type based on s-convexity and their applications to special means of real numbers. Park in  gave some Hadamard and Simpson type results for functions whose second derivatives are s-convex in the second sense. In addition, Gao and Shi  obtained new inequalities of Newton type for functions whose absolute values of second derivatives are convex. Inspired by this, some researchers obtained Hermite–Hadamard, Simpson and Simpson’s second type/Newton type inequalities via harmonically convex mappings (see [10, 14, 15]).

Integral equations play an important role in pure and applied mathematics. A large number of initial and boundary value problems related to ordinary and partial differential equations can be transformed into problems of solving some approximate integral equations. However, some initial and boundary value problems are fractal curves, which are everywhere continuous but nowhere differentiable. In these cases, it can be used local fractional theory to handle the fractal and continuously non-differentiable functions, because this theory deal with everywhere continuous but nowhere differentiable functions in fractal space.

Local fractional theory that was introduced by Yang in  is used to handle different non-differentiable problems which appear in complex systems of the real-world phenomenon. Specifically, the non-differentiability circumstance in science and engineering was modeled by means of ordinary or partial differential equations including local fractional statements. What is more, local fractional derivatives and integrals are effectively applied many equations such as Fokker–Planck, diffusion and relaxation equation in fractal space, the fractal heat conduction equation and local fractional diffusion equation. We also note that concepts of fractional calculus have many advantages, for example one of the significant advantages of the Caputo fractional derivative is that it allows traditional initial and boundary conditions to be included in the formulation of the problem. On the other side, Fractional calculus have played a significant role in different fields of pure and applied sciences such as mechanics, electricity, chemistry, biology, economics, notably control theory, and signal and image processing etc. Due to this, local fractal theory has received significantly great attention from scientists and engineers. Therewith, these topics are observed a lot of researchers who study in areas such as mathematical physics and applied sciences (for example ). For more details, see . Furthermore, local fractional versions of some inequalities which have a very significant role in application areas of mathematics are studied by many mathematicians. For instance, Chen established a Hölder inequality and some integral inequalities on fractal space in . In , Mo et al. discovered the generalized Hermite–Hadamard inequality for a generalized convex function. Also, generalized Hermite–Hadamard type inequalities for generalized convex functions were presented by Sarikaya and Budak in . New Simpson type integral inequalities involving local fractional integrals were obtained by Sarikaya et al. . Sun, in , introduced the concept of generalized harmonically convex functions and obtained Hermite–Hadamard type inequalities. He has also worked on some inequalities on generalization of Ostrowski and Simpson type inequalities for functions whose absolute values of derivatives are generalized harmonically convex in . In addition to these results, Noor et al. deduced several new Hermite–Hadamard inequalities for a new class of convex functions including generalized convex functions and harmonic convex functions in . For some useful and recent studies on fractional calculus and its applications in different fields of mathematics, see [13, 5, 7, 8, 11, 12, 18, 24].

The main objective of this paper is to obtain a new auxiliary result based on a three step quadratic kernel by utilizing the concepts of local fractional calculus. With the help of this new auxiliary result we obtain several new integral inequalities of Newton type for functions whose powers of local fractional derivatives in modulus are generalized harmonic convex. The main motivation of this paper is to capture new estimations for generalized convex functions. We expect that the ideas and techniques used in this paper will inspire the interested reader working in the field of inequalities.

## Preliminaries

In this section, we discuss some preliminary concepts and results which will play significant roles in the development of the main results of the paper.

First of all, we give the set $$\mathbb{R}^{\alpha }$$ of real line numbers to describe the definitions of the local fractional derivative and integral. For $$0<\alpha \leq 1$$, we have the following α-type sets:

$$Z^{\alpha }$$::

The α-type set of integer is defined as the set $$\{ 0^{\alpha },\pm 1^{\alpha },\pm 2^{\alpha },\ldots,\pm n^{ \alpha },\ldots \}$$.

$$Q^{\alpha }$$::

The α-type set of the rational numbers is defined as the set $$\{m^{\alpha }= ( \frac{p}{q} ) ^{\alpha }: {p,q\in Z}, {q\neq 0}\}$$.

$$J^{\alpha }$$::

The α-type set of the irrational numbers is defined as the set $$\{m^{\alpha }\neq ( \frac{p}{q} ) ^{\alpha }: {p,q\in Z}, {q\neq 0}\}$$.

$$\mathbb{R}^{\alpha }$$::

The α-type set of the real numbers is defined as the set $$\mathbb{R}^{\alpha }=Q^{\alpha }\cup J^{\alpha }$$.

If $$\rho ^{\alpha }$$, $$\sigma ^{\alpha }$$ and $$\tau ^{\alpha }$$ belongs to the set $$\mathbb{R}^{\alpha }$$ of real numbers, then

1. (1)

$$\rho ^{\alpha }+\sigma ^{\alpha }$$ and $$\rho ^{\alpha }\sigma ^{\alpha }$$ belongs to the set $$\mathbb{R}^{\alpha }$$;

2. (2)

$$\rho ^{\alpha }+\sigma ^{\alpha }=\sigma ^{\alpha }+\rho ^{\alpha }= ( \rho +\sigma ) ^{\alpha }= ( \sigma +\rho ) ^{\alpha }$$;

3. (3)

$$\rho ^{\alpha }+ ( \sigma ^{\alpha }+\tau ^{\alpha } ) = ( \rho +\sigma ) ^{\alpha }+\tau ^{\alpha }$$;

4. (4)

$$\rho ^{\alpha }\sigma ^{\alpha }=\sigma ^{\alpha }\rho ^{\alpha }= ( \rho \sigma ) ^{\alpha }= ( \sigma \rho ) ^{ \alpha }$$;

5. (5)

$$\rho ^{\alpha } ( \sigma ^{\alpha }\tau ^{\alpha } ) = ( \rho ^{\alpha }\sigma ^{\alpha } ) \tau ^{\alpha }$$;

6. (6)

$$\rho ^{\alpha } ( \sigma ^{\alpha }+\tau ^{\alpha } ) = \rho ^{\alpha }\sigma ^{\alpha }+\rho ^{\alpha }\tau ^{\alpha }$$;

7. (7)

$$\rho ^{\alpha }+0^{\alpha }=0^{\alpha }+\rho ^{\alpha }=\rho ^{ \alpha }$$ and $$\rho ^{\alpha }1^{\alpha }=1^{\alpha }\rho ^{\alpha }=\rho ^{\alpha }$$.

The definition of the local fractional derivative is given as follows.

### Definition 2.1

### Definition 2.3

()

Let . Then the local fractional integral is defined by with $$\Delta x_{j}=x_{j+1}-x_{j}$$ and $$\Delta x=\max \{ \Delta x_{1},\Delta x_{2},\ldots,\Delta x_{N-1} \}$$, where $$[ x_{j},x_{j+1} ]$$, $$j=0,\ldots,N-1$$ and $$c=x_{0}< x_{1}<\cdots<x_{N-1}<x_{N}=d$$ is a partition of the interval $$[ c,d ]$$.

Here, it follows that if $$c=d$$ and if $$c< d$$. If, for any , there exists , then we denote .

2. (ii) , $$k\in \mathbb{R}$$.

The class of generalized harmonic convex function which will be examined in this paper is defined as follows.

### Definition 2.4

()

Let $$\varphi :I\subset \mathbb{R}\setminus \{0\} \rightarrow \mathbb{R}^{\alpha }$$. For any $$c,d\in I$$ and , if the inequality holds, then φ is called a generalized harmonic convex function on I.

Chen  presented the generalized Hölder inequality on fractal space as follows.

### Theorem 2.5

Let$$\varphi (x)$$, $$\psi (x)\in C_{\alpha }(c,d)$$, $$p>1$$, $$\frac{1}{p}+\frac{1}{q}=1$$. Then

\begin{aligned} \frac{1}{\varGamma (1+\alpha )} \int _{c}^{d} \bigl\vert \varphi (x)\psi (x) \bigr\vert ( \mathrm{d}x)^{\alpha }& \leq \biggl(\frac{1}{\varGamma (1+\alpha )} \int _{c}^{d} \bigl\vert \varphi (x) \bigr\vert ^{p}(\mathrm{d}x)^{\alpha } \biggr)^{\frac{1}{p}} \\ & \quad {}\times \biggl(\frac{1}{\varGamma (1+\alpha )} \int _{c}^{d} \bigl\vert \psi (x) \bigr\vert ^{q}(\mathrm{d}x)^{\alpha } \biggr)^{\frac{1}{q}}. \end{aligned}

## Results and discussions

In this section, we first give an auxiliary result involving local factional integral and then we use this result to obtain new Newton type inequalities via generalized harmonic convex functions.

### Lemma 3.1

Let$$\varphi :I^{\circ }\subset \mathbb{R}\rightarrow \mathbb{R}^{\alpha }$$be a function such that$$\varphi \in D_{\alpha }(I^{\circ })$$and$$\varphi ^{(\alpha )}\in C_{\alpha }[c,d]$$, where$$I^{\circ }$$is the interior of$$I\subset \mathbb{R}\setminus \{0\}$$. Then, for all$$x\in {}[ c,d]$$, we have (3.1)

where is defined by ### Proof

From the definition of , we have (3.2)

Applying the local fractional integration by parts to the first integral in the right side of (3.2), we find that (3.3)

Combining the resulting identities after calculating the other integrals in (3.2), from the property of fractal space $$c^{\alpha }+d^{\alpha }=(c+d)^{\alpha }$$, it follows that Finally, if we use the change of the variable and from , then we obtain the desired equality (3.1) which completes the proof. □

### Remark 3.1

If we take $$\alpha =1$$, then Lemma 3.1 collapses to the previous well-known result obtained by Noor et al. in .

### Theorem 3.2

Let$$\varphi :I^{\circ }\subset \mathbb{R}\rightarrow \mathbb{R}^{\alpha }$$be a function such that$$\varphi \in D_{\alpha }(I^{\circ })$$and$$\varphi ^{(\alpha )}\in C_{\alpha }[c,d]$$where$$I^{\circ }$$is the interior of$$I\subset \mathbb{R}\setminus \{0\}$$. If$$|\varphi ^{(\alpha )}|^{q}$$is a generalized harmonic convex function for$$1\leq q$$, then one has (3.4)

and

### Proof

Taking the modulus in Lemma 3.1 and using the definition of , we have (3.5)

If we also apply the power mean inequality to integrals in the right side of (3.5), and using the fact that $$|\varphi ^{(\alpha )}|^{q}$$ is generalized harmonic convex on $$[c,d]$$, we have (3.6)

From the Lemma 2.4, it is easy to see that (3.7) (3.8) (3.9)

On the other side, using the change of the variable by considering the Lemmas 2.3 and 2.2, one can obtain (3.10)

Now, letting $$\frac{1}{x^{2q-2}}=u$$ and from $$\frac{1}{x^{(2q-1)\alpha }}(\mathrm{d}x)^{\alpha }=\frac{1}{(2-2q)^{\alpha }}(\mathrm{d}u)^{ \alpha }$$, we get

\begin{aligned} & \frac{1}{\varGamma (1+\alpha )} \int _{\frac{c+7d}{8}}^{d} \frac{(c+7d)^{\alpha }+(8c)^{\alpha }}{x^{\alpha (2q-1)}}( \mathrm{d}x)^{ \alpha } \\ &\quad = \frac{(c+7d)^{\alpha }+(8c)^{\alpha }}{\varGamma (1+\alpha )(2-2q)^{\alpha }} \int _{(\frac{c+7d}{8})^{2-2q}}^{d^{2-2q}}(\mathrm{d}u)^{\alpha } \\ & \quad = \frac{((c+7d)^{\alpha }+(8c)^{\alpha })(d^{2-2q}-(\frac{c+7d}{8})^{2-2q})^{\alpha }}{\varGamma (1+\alpha )(2-2q)^{\alpha }} \end{aligned}
(3.11)

and

\begin{aligned} & \frac{1}{\varGamma (1+\alpha )} \int _{\frac{c+2d}{3}}^{\frac{c+7d}{8}} \frac{(c+7d)^{\alpha }+(8c)^{\alpha }}{x^{\alpha (2q-1)}}( \mathrm{d}x)^{ \alpha } \\ &\quad = \frac{(c+7d)^{\alpha }+(8c)^{\alpha }}{\varGamma (1+\alpha )(2-2q)^{\alpha }} \int _{(\frac{c+2d}{3})^{2-2q}}^{(\frac{c+7d}{8})^{2-2q}}( \mathrm{d}u)^{\alpha } \\ & \quad = \frac{((c+7d)^{\alpha }+(8c)^{\alpha })((\frac{c+7d}{8})^{2-2q}-(\frac{c+2d}{3})^{2-2q})^{\alpha }}{\varGamma (1+\alpha )(2-2q)^{\alpha }}. \end{aligned}
(3.12)

Letting $$\frac{1}{x^{2q-1}}=u$$ and from $$\frac{1}{x^{2q\alpha }}(\mathrm{d}x)^{\alpha }=\frac{1}{(1-2q)^{\alpha }}(\mathrm{d}u)^{\alpha }$$, we have

\begin{aligned} & \frac{1}{\varGamma (1+\alpha )} \int _{\frac{c+7d}{8}}^{d} \frac{c^{\alpha }(c+7d)^{\alpha }}{x^{2q\alpha }}( \mathrm{d}x)^{ \alpha } \\ & \quad = \frac{c^{\alpha }(c+7d)^{\alpha }}{\varGamma (1+\alpha )(1-2q)^{\alpha }} \int _{(\frac{c+7d}{8})^{1-2q}}^{d^{1-2q}}(\mathrm{d}u)^{\alpha } \\ & \quad = \frac{(c^{\alpha }(c+7d)^{\alpha })(d^{1-2q}-(\frac{c+7d}{8})^{1-2q})^{\alpha }}{\varGamma (1+\alpha )(1-2q)^{\alpha }} \end{aligned}
(3.13)

and

\begin{aligned} & \frac{1}{\varGamma (1+\alpha )} \int _{\frac{c+2d}{3}}^{\frac{c+7d}{8}} \frac{c^{\alpha }(c+7d)^{\alpha }}{x^{2q\alpha }}( \mathrm{d}x)^{\alpha } \\ &\quad = \frac{c^{\alpha }(c+7d)^{\alpha }}{\varGamma (1+\alpha )(1-2q)^{\alpha }} \int _{(\frac{c+2d}{3})^{1-2q}}^{(\frac{c+7d}{8})^{1-2q}}( \mathrm{d}u)^{\alpha } \\ &\quad = \frac{(c^{\alpha }(c+7d)^{\alpha })((\frac{c+7d}{8})^{1-2q}-(\frac{c+2d}{3})^{1-2q})^{\alpha }}{\varGamma (1+\alpha )(1-2q)^{\alpha }}. \end{aligned}
(3.14)

Letting $$\frac{1}{x^{2q-3}}=u$$ and from , we have

\begin{aligned} & \frac{1}{\varGamma (1+\alpha )} \int _{\frac{c+7d}{8}}^{d} \frac{8^{\alpha }}{x^{\alpha (2q-2)}}( \mathrm{d}x)^{\alpha } \\ &\quad =\frac{8^{\alpha }}{\varGamma (1+\alpha )(3-2q)^{\alpha }} \int _{( \frac{c+7d}{8})^{3-2q}}^{d^{3-2q}}(\mathrm{d}u)^{\alpha } \\ & \quad = \frac{8^{\alpha }(d^{3-2q}-(\frac{c+7d}{8})^{3-2q})^{\alpha }}{\varGamma (1+\alpha )(3-2q)^{\alpha }} \end{aligned}
(3.15)

and

\begin{aligned} & \frac{1}{\varGamma (1+\alpha )} \int _{\frac{c+2d}{3}}^{\frac{c+7d}{8}} \frac{8^{\alpha }}{x^{\alpha (2q-2)}}( \mathrm{d}x)^{\alpha } \\ &\quad =\frac{8^{\alpha }}{\varGamma (1+\alpha )(3-2q)^{\alpha }} \int _{( \frac{c+2d}{3})^{3-2q}}^{(\frac{c+7d}{8})^{3-2q}}(\mathrm{d}u)^{\alpha } \\ & \quad = \frac{8^{\alpha }((\frac{c+7d}{8})^{3-2q}-(\frac{c+2d}{3})^{3-2q})^{\alpha }}{\varGamma (1+\alpha )(3-2q)^{\alpha }}. \end{aligned}
(3.16)

Substituting the equalities (3.11)–(3.16) in (3.10), one has If we similarly calculate the other integrals in (3.6) and later substitute the resulting identities and the equalities (3.7)–(3.9) in (3.6), then we attain the desired inequality (3.4). The proof is thus completed. □

### Theorem 3.3

Let$$\varphi :I^{\circ }\subset \mathbb{R}\rightarrow \mathbb{R}^{\alpha }$$be a function such that$$\varphi \in D_{\alpha }(I^{\circ })$$and$$\varphi ^{(\alpha )}\in C_{\alpha }[c,d]$$where$$I\subset \mathbb{R}\setminus \{0\}$$. If$$|\varphi ^{(\alpha )}|^{q}$$is a generalized harmonic convex function for$$p>1$$, $$\frac{1}{p}+\frac{1}{q}=1$$, then one has ### Proof

If we apply Hölder’s inequality to the inequality (3.5), because of the generalized harmonic convexity of $$|\varphi ^{(\alpha )}|^{q}$$, we get Using the change of the variable by considering the Lemmas 2.3 and 2.2, one can obtain and From Lemma 2.4, one can easily see that Similarly, we have Thus, the proof is completed. □

### Remark 3.2

For suitable and appropriate choices of α and q, one can obtain new and well-known results.
