We now turn to the question of how the Hermite-Hadamard inequality arises in various formulae in mathematics, specifically quadrature formulae which allow for numerical approximation of definite integrals.

For , we can integrate by parts to obtain

If is in addition convex (i.e. ), then the the preceding quadrature formula gives us the right Hermite-Hadamard inequality.
