A new generalization of Ostrowski’s integral inequality for mappings whose derivatives are bounded and applications in numerical integration and for special means. (English) Zbl 0946.26013

Summary: We establish a new inequality of Ostrowski type for functions with bounded derivatives. This has immediate applications in numerical integration where new estimates are obtained for the remainder term of the trapezoid, midpoint, and Simpson formulae. Applications to special means are also investigated.
