Probabilistic inequalities often have the advantage of providing intuitive proofs. Furthermore, many inequalities achieve equality for two-point distributions, in which case sharpness is readily exhibited. This talk provides an exposition of a variety of probabilistic inequalities, and their counterpart matrix inequalities. Examples are the Ky Fan inequality, bounds for the product, difference and ratio of quadratic forms, bilinear forms, the Hadamard inequality, and more.
