Abstract: In this paper, expressions of the form $ f \prec g$ or $ f \prec \prec g$ (where $ \prec $ and $ \prec \prec $ denote the Hardy-Littlewood-Pólya spectral order relations) are called spectral inequalities. Here a general induction principle for spectral and rearrangement inequalities involving a pair of n-tuples in $ {R^n}$ as well as their decreasing and increasing rearrangements is developed. This induction principle proves that such spectral or rearrangement inequalities hold iff they hold for the case when $ n = 2$, and that, under some mild conditions, this discrete result can be generalized to include measurable functions with integrable positive parts. A similar induction principle for spectral and rearrangement inequalities involving more than two measurable functions is also established. With this induction principle, some well-known spectral or rearrangement inequalities are obtained as particular cases and additional new results given.
