So I failed the AOIME. I don't really want to do any more AIME prep, so I have decided to go do some Oly prep :). Here's some oly notes/favorite problems
Yay! I love inequalities. Clever algebraic manipulation+thereoms is all you need. It all comes from experience though...
AM-GM, Cauchy (Titu's Lemma as well), Muirhead, and Holder's. These are cool, remember that these should only be used when the inequality is homogenized already.. These are all pretty easy to prove as well.
Example 1: (Evan Chen) Let with . Prove that
Solution: We need to try to homogenize this somehow. Plugging in the expression for on the LHS for won't work. If we try to do something on the left side, we'll still have a degree . Wait a second, why are they all 's? Let's try to get rid of the 's first. Well, if we add to both sides of the given condition, we get
By AM-GM. Obviously the trivial solution satisfies this, so we haven't made any silly mistakes. We still haven't homogenized, but now the path is clear. Multiplying both sides by , we get
Which is true from AM-GM. We shall now introduce Muirhead's...
Let (Again Evan Chen) and . Prove that .
Solution: First we homogenize:
Which is true because majorizes
Problem 1: (2009 usamo/4): For let , , ..., be positive real numbers such that Prove that .
Try to solve this on your own! Very cute problem. Note that you'll probably only ever need Holder's for variables...
Example 3 (2004 usamo/5)
Let , , and be positive real numbers. Prove that .
1. The is cubed, so we try to use Holder's. The simplest way to do this is just to use on the LHS.
2. Now all we have to prove is that , or . Now note that if , this is true, if , this is true, and if , this is true as well, and as we have exhausted all cases, we are done.

You will need to know derivatives for this part. It's actually quite simple. Derivative=Tangent.
Basically, the derivative of is Adding and other stuff works in the same way. You also probably need to know -Product Rule: -Quotient Rule: -Summing: (f+g)'=f'+g'
The second derivative of a function is just applying the derivative twice. A function is convex on an interval if it's second derivative is always positive in that interval.
Jensen's inequality says that if is a convex function in the interval , for all in ,
Karamata's inequality says that if is convex in the interval , the sequence majorizes ,, and all are in ,
TLT (Tangent Line Trick) is basically where you either a. take the derivative, and plug in the equality cases or b. plugging in both equality cases to form a line.
Problem 2: Show that
Problem 3: Using Jensen's and Holder's, solve 2001 IMO/2: Let be positive real numbers. Prove .
Problem 4: (2017 usamo/6) Find the minimum possible value of given that are nonnegative real numbers such that .
Problem 5: (Japanese MO 1997/6) Prove that
for any positive real numbers , , .
Ravi Substitution for triangles. .
Power Mean: The weighted form of AM-GM is given by using weighted averages. For example, the weighted arithmetic mean of and with is and the geometric is . (AoPS Wiki)

-Function=anything. -Symmetry -Plug in -Check for linear/constant solutions first. They are usually the only ones. -fff trick is pro -Pointwise trap?!? -Be aware of your domain/range. ((Probably not))
