Concave Function,Convex Function,Concavifiable Function,Majorization,


In the current article, we would give some results related to concave function and introduce the definition of concaviable function and new notion of concaviable functions and obtain the new results in which involved concaviable function and we would obtain new major ization type results for weighted concaviable function. This article also recaptures the similar results for concave function as well as for convex function.
