We do not only give the extensions of the results given by Gill et al. (1997) for logconvex functions but also obtain some new Hadamardtype inequalities for logconvex convex, and convex functions.
1. Introduction
The following inequality is well known in the literature as Hadamard's inequality:
where is a convex function on the interval of real numbers and with This inequality is one of the most useful inequalities in mathematical analysis. For new proofs, note worthy extension, generalizations, and numerous applications on this inequality; see ([1–6]) where further references are given.
Let be on interval in . Then is said to be convex if, for all and ,
(see [5], Page 1). Geometrically, this means that if , and are three distinct points on the graph of with between and , then is on or below chord
Recall that a function is said to be logconvex function if, for all and , one has the inequality (see [5], Page 3)
It is said to be logconcave if the inequality in (1.3) is reversed.
In [7], Toader defined convexity as follows.
Definition 1.1.
The function , is said to be convex, where , if one has

Denote by the class of all convex functions on such that (if ). Obviously, if we choose Definition 1.1 recaptures the concept of standard convex functions on
In [8], Miheşan defined convexity as in the following:
Definition 1.2.

For recent results and generalizations concerning convex and convex functions, see ([9–12]).
In the literature, the logarithmic mean of the positive real numbers is defined as the following:
(for , we put ).
In [13], Gill et al. established the following results.
Theorem 1.3.

For a positive concave function, the inequality is reversed.
Corollary 1.4.
Let be positive convex functions on . Then
If is a positive concave function, then
For some recent results related to the Hadamard's inequalities involving two convex functions, see [14] and the references cited therein. The main purpose of this paper is to establish the general version of inequalities (1.7) and new Hadamardtype inequalities involving two convex functions, two convex functions, or two convex functions using elementary analysis.
2. Main Results
We start with the following theorem.
Theorem 2.1.
Let be convex functions on and with . Then the following inequality holds:
where is a logarithmic mean of positive real numbers.
For a positive concave function, the inequality is reversed.
Proof.
Since are convex functions on , we have
for all and Writing (2.2) for and multiplying the resulting inequalities, it is easy to observe that
for all and
Integrating inequality (2.3) on over , we get

Remark 2.4.
By taking and in (2.7) and (2.8) we obtain the inequalities of Corollary 1.4.
We will now point out some new results of the Hadamard type for logconvex, convex, and convex functions, respectively.
Theorem 2.5.

Integrating both sides of (2.19) and (2.20) on over , respectively, we obtain
Combining (2.21), we get the required inequalities (2.17). The proof is complete.
Theorem 2.7.
Let be such that is in , where . If is nonincreasing convex function and is nonincreasing convex function on for some fixed then the following inequality holds:

Analogously we obtain
Rewriting (2.27) and (2.28), we get the required inequality in (2.22). The proof is complete.
Theorem 2.8.

Analogously we obtain
Rewriting (2.34) and (2.35), we get the required inequality in (2.29). The proof is complete.
Remark 2.9.
In Theorem 2.8, if we choose , we obtain the inequality of Theorem 2.7.
