## Abstract

Let $P_n(x)$ be an algebraic polynomial of degree $\leqslant n$ having all zeros inside $\lbrack -1, + 1 \rbrack$; then we have $$\int^1_{-1} P_n^{'2}(x) dx > \bigg(\frac{n}{2} + \frac{3}{4} + \frac{3}{4n} \bigg) \int^1_{-1} P_n^2(x)dx.$$ This bound is much sharper than found in [2]. Moreover, if $P_n(1) = P_n(-1) = 0$, then under the above conditions we have $$\int^1_{-1} P_n^{'2}(x)dx \geqslant \bigg(\frac{n}{2} + \frac{3}{4} + \frac{3}{4(n - 1)} \bigg) \int^1_{-1} P_n^2(x)dx,$$ equality for $P_n(x) = (1 - x^2)^m, n = 2m$.
