L^r inequalities for the derivative of a polynomial


Let p(z) be a polynomial of degree n having no zero in |z|< k, k\leq 1, then Govil [Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci., \textbf{50}, (1980), 50-52] proved

\max\limits_{|z|=1}|p'(z)|\leq \dfrac{n}{1+k^{n}}\max\limits_{|z|=1}|p(z)|,

provided |p'(z)| and |q'(z)| attain their maxima at the same point on the circle |z|=1, where


In this paper, we not only obtain an integral mean inequality for the above inequality but also extend an improved version of it into L^{r} norm.
