Regarding Schwartz inequality and integration bounds

  1. Feb 2, 2016 #1
    Based on Schwartz inequality, I am trying to figure out why there
    should/can be the "s" variable which is the lower bound of the
    integration in the RHS of the following inequality:
    ## \left \|\int_{-s}^{0} A(t+r)Z(t+r) dr \right \|^{2} \leq s\int_{-s}^{0}\left \| A(t+r)Z(t+r) \right \|^{2} dr, ##
    instead of:
    ## \left \|\int_{-s}^{0} A(t+r)Z(t+r) dr \right \|^{2} \leq \int_{-s}^{0}\left \| A(t+r)Z(t+r) \right \|^{2} dr. ##

    Apply the Cauchy-Schwarz inequality to the functions##f,\ g## defined by ##f(r)=A(t+r)Z(t+r)## and ##g(r)=1##.

    Sure. My confusion was because of the example in my mind that s can be a very small value which then the upper bound will be also very small and as a result, physically conservatism but again mathematically correct. Thank you very much.
