### Determinant of sum of positive definite matrices

Say $A$ and $B$ are symmetric, positive definite matrices. I've proved that $\det(A+B) \ge \det(A) + \det(B)$ in the case that $A$ and $B$ are two dimensional. Is this true in general for $n$-...

### the following inequality is true，but I can't prove it

The inequality is \begin{equation*} \sum_{k=1}^{2d}\left(1-\frac{1}{2d+2-k}\right)\frac{d^k}{k!}>e^d\left(1-\frac{1}{d}\right) \end{equation*} for all integer $d\geq 1$. I use computer to verify ...

### An Entropy Inequality

Let $X,Y$ be probability measures on $\{1,2,\dots,n\}$, and set $K=\sum_i\sqrt{X(i)Y(i)}$ so that $Z:=\frac{1}{K}\sqrt{XY}$ is also a probability measure on $\{1,2,\dots,n\}$. How can we prove the ...

### Logarithm of AM/GM ratio: $\sqrt{\log((x+y)/(2\sqrt{xy}))}$
Recently, while playing around with infinite-divisibility, i arrived at the following metric: $$d(x,y) := \sqrt{\log\left(\frac{x+y}{2\sqrt{xy}}\right)},$$ defined for positive reals $x$ and $y$. ...
