We present some of the classical inequalities in analysis in the context of Archimedean (real or complex) vector lattices and -algebras. In particular, we prove an identity for sesquilinear maps from the Cartesian square of a vector space to a geometric mean closed Archimedean vector lattice, from which a Cauchy–Schwarz inequality follows. A reformulation of this result for sesquilinear maps with a geometric mean closed semiprime Archimedean -algebra as codomain is also given. In addition, a sufficient and necessary condition for equality is presented. We also prove a Hölder inequality for weighted geometric mean closed Archimedean -algebras, substantially improving results by K. Boulabiar and M. A. Toumi. As a consequence, a Minkowski inequality for weighted geometric mean closed Archimedean -algebras is obtained.
