Title: Graphical representations of mean values
Abstract: We consider several ways to define mean values,
including arithmetic, geometric, and harmonic means and some more
obscure means as well, and survey techniques for organizing mean values
into families to include as many special cases as possible. We will consider algebraic families, a
graphical approach due to Moskovitz, and calculus based techniques.
