Abstract: We prove the following extended version of Simons' inequality and present its applications. Let be a set and be a subset of . Let be a subset of a Hausdorff topological vector space which is invariant under infinite convex combinations. Let be a bounded function such that the functions are convex for all and whenever , and Let be a sequence in . Assume that, for every , there exists satisfying . Then

If , then the set in the above inequality can be replaced by .
