Abstract. By variational methods, we prove the inequality
\[
\int_\R u''{}^2\,dx\int_\R u''\,u^2\,dx\geq I\,\int_\R u^4\,dx
\]
for all $u\in L^4(\R)$ such that $u''\in L^2(\R)$ and for some constant $I\in (9/64,1/4)$. This inequality is connected to LiebThirring type problems and has interesting scaling properties. The best constant is achieved by sign changing minimizers of a problem on periodic functions, but does not depend on the period. Moreover, we completely characterize the minimizers of the periodic problem.
