## Discrete inequalities of Wirtinger’s type for higher differences.(English)Zbl 0893.26009

In the paper, discrete Wirtinger’s type inequalities of the form $\sum^{u_m}_{k= s_m} (\Delta^mx_k)^2\leq 4^m \cos^{2m} \Biggl({\pi\over 2n}\Biggr) \sum^n_{k= 1} x^2_k,\tag{$$*$$}$
$\sum^{u_m}_{k= s_m} (\Delta^mx_k)^2\geq 4^m \sin^{2m} \Biggl({\pi\over 2n}\Biggr) \sum^n_{k= 1} x^2_k,\tag{$$**$$}$ where $$s_m= 1-[m/2]$$, $$u_m= n-[m/2]$$, $$x_1,\dots, x_n$$ are given real numbers such that $$x_t= x_{1- t}$$, $$x_{n+ 1-t}= x_{n+ t}$$ for $$s_m\leq t\leq 0$$, and $$\sum^n_{k= 1} x_k= 0$$ (in the case $$(**)$$) are presented. For earlier results $$(m=2)$$ see, e.g., K. Fan, O. Taussky and J. Todd [Monats. Math. 59, 73-90 (1955; Zbl 0064.29803)] and W. Chen [Arch. Math. 62, No. 4, 315-320 (1994; Zbl 0791.26011)].
