By the sine theorem, the given inequality is equivalent to

$\begin{array}{}\text{(1)}& \frac{1}{\mathrm{sin}A}+\frac{1}{\mathrm{sin}B}+\frac{1}{\mathrm{sin}C}\ge 2\sqrt{3}\end{array}$

and since $\frac{1}{\mathrm{sin}(x)}$ is a convex function on the interval $(0,\pi )$, (1) is a straightforward consequence of Jensen's inequality.

Since $ab+ac+bc\ge \sum _{cyc}(2ab-{a}^{2})$ it's just $\sum _{cyc}(a-b{)}^{2}\ge 0$ and

$\sum _{cyc}(2ab-{a}^{2})=\sum _{cyc}a(b+c-a)>0,$

it's enough to prove that

$\sum _{cyc}(2ab-{a}^{2})\ge 4\sqrt{3}S$

or

$\sum _{cyc}(2ab-{a}^{2})\ge \sqrt{3\sum _{cyc}(2{a}^{2}{b}^{2}-{a}^{4})}$

or

$\sum _{cyc}({a}^{4}-{a}^{3}b-{a}^{3}c+{a}^{2}bc)\ge 0,$

which is Schur.

Done!

Find the inverse function of ${\mathrm{tan}}^{2}\left(x\right)-2\sqrt{3}\mathrm{tan}\left(x\right)$

The question is pretty clear, we must find the inverse function of

$f:x\to {\mathrm{tan}}^{2}\left(x\right)-2\sqrt{3}\left(\mathrm{tan}\left(x\right)\right)$

This function is a bijection from$(-\frac{\pi}{2}+k\pi ,\frac{\pi}{3}+k\pi )$ to $(-3,+\mathrm{\infty})$ since it is strictly decreasing and continuous.

I've tried factorizing with tangent and playing with the equation so I can add Arctangent to eliminate tangent like with usual functions but I do not seem to be capable succeeding using this method.

P.S: This function is also a bijection from$(-\frac{\pi}{3}+k\pi ,\frac{\pi}{2}+k\pi )$ to $(-3,+\mathrm{\infty})$
