Chisini mean

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

In mathematics, a function f of n variables

x1, ..., xn

leads to a Chisini mean M if for every vector <x1 ... xn>, there exists a unique M such that

f(M,M, ..., M) = f(x1,x2, ..., xn).

The arithmetic, harmonic, geometric, generalised, Heronian and quadratic means are all Chisini means, as are their weighted variants.

They were introduced by Oscar Chisini in 1929.
