Abstract: In this paper we offer some inequalities involving multivariate convex functions. Among other things a refinement of classical Jensen's inequality as well as an extension of Fejér's inequality to the case of $ s$-variate $ (s \geq 1)$ functions are included. These results are obtained with the aid of the generalized simplex splines.
