The OEIS Foundation is supported by donations from users of the OEIS and by a grant from the Simons Foundation.

 Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). Other ways to donate

 A283810 Numbers of variables for which the Shapiro inequality holds. 0

 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Given k positive numbers x_1,..., x_k, the inequality x_1 / (x_2 + x_3) + x_2 / (x_3 + x_4) + ... + x_k / (x_1 + x_2) >= k/2 is known as Shapiro inequality. It has been proved that it holds for every choice of the x's if k <= 12 and k is even or if k <= 23 and k is odd. LINKS Wikipedia, Shapiro inequality EXAMPLE The inequality fails for the 14 numbers {2, 92, 1, 97, 4, 99, 9, 96, 11, 91, 10, 88, 6, 88} and thus 14 is not in the sequence.
