Let be non-negative numbers, not all zero. Then
Proved by F. Carlson . The analogue of the Carlson inequality for integrals is: If , , then
The constant is best possible in the sense that there exists a sequence such that right-hand side of (1) is arbitrarily close to the left-hand side, and there exists a function for which (2) holds with equality.
