### 1. Introduction

The role of mathematical inequalities within the mathematical branches as well as in its various application should not be underestimated. The appearance of the new mathematical inequality often puts on the firm foundation for the heuristic algorithms and techniques utilized within applied sciences. Among other one of the main inequality, which provides for us an explicit error bounds in the trapezodial and midpoint rules of a smooth function, called Hermite-Hadamard’s inequality defined as [^{[1]}, p. 53]:

We note that Hermite-Hadamard’s inequality may be regarded as a refinement of the concept of convexity and it follows easily from Jensen inequality. Inequality (1.1) has received renewed attention in recent years and a remarkable variety of refinements and generalization have been discovered ^{[2, 7, 10, 11]} and the refrences cited therein.
