Quasi-arithmetic means

Jan Górowski, Adam Łomnicki


We present a list of geometric problems with solutions that lead to knownor less known means. We also prove, by elementary means, some property for so-calledquasi-arithmetic means. We use the proved result to justify some inequalities betweenthe means.
