### A unsolved puzzle from Number Theory/ Functional inequalities

The function $g:[0,1]\to[0,1]$ is continuously differentiable and increasing. Also, $g(0)=0$ and $g(1)=1$. Continuity and differentiability of higher orders can be assumed if necessary. The ...

### submodular-like functions on $\mathbb{R}$

The definition of submodularity led me to define a type of function on numbers (I suppose ordered rings, but consider the reals for now) as $f(x) + f(y) \ge f(x+y) + f(xy)$. Such functions exist: for ...

### Functional inequality and one identity

I'm a high school student from Bonn, Germany and I have to solve the following problem: If $g:R \rightarrow R$ is a function with the property $g(ab)-ag(b)\leq bg(a)$, for all real numbers a and b, ...
Find all (at least one) functions $f\colon \mathbb{R}\to \mathbb{R}$ (or show there is none), such that $$f(x^3+x)≤x≤f(x^3)+f(x), \quad \text{for all x\in \mathbb{R}}.$$ This is a problem asked ...
### Counting $2010^2$-tuples
Here's a problem i invented myself, but i'm not sure about my solution. I'll show it later, so people can enjoy trying to find one: Consider the function $f:\mathbb{R}^2\to\{1,2,...,2012\}$ that ...
