Generalized mean (power mean)

Description

In mathematics, generalised means are a family of functions for aggregating sets of numbers, that include as special cases the arithmetic, geometric, and harmonic means. The generalized mean is also known as power mean. If p is a non-zero real number, we can define the generalised mean or power mean with exponent p of the positive real numbers x1,x2,...xn
