AB - Let ϕ be an arbitrary bijection of $ℝ_+$. We prove that if the two-place function $ϕ^{-1}[ϕ (s)+ϕ (t)]$ is subadditive in $ℝ^2_+$ then $ϕ $ must be a convex homeomorphism of $ℝ_+$. This is a partial converse of Mulholland’s inequality. Some new properties of subadditive bijections of $ℝ_+$ are also given. We apply the above results to obtain several converses of Minkowski’s inequality.
