In the last two posts I’ve been talking about an example I made with four-dimensional vectors such that , and . Finding it was more difficult than I at first expected, so I thought I would write the investigation up, which happily gives me an excuse to introduce a useful inequality.
My first thoughts were to choose something like and or , and then I’d got stuck choosing . So I decided to try to prove the opposite.
First of all, it’s not possible to create such an example in two dimensions. Continue reading
