In this paper, we study the the parabolic Marcinkiewicz integral MΩ,hρ1,ρ2 on product domains Rn × Rm (n, m ≥ 2). Lp estimates of such operators are obtained under weak conditions on the kernels. These estimates allow us to use an extrapolation argument to obtain some new and improved results on parabolic Marcinkiewicz integral operators.

1 Introduction and the main result

Let RN (N = n or m), N ≥ 2 be the N-dimensional Euclidean space, and let SN−1 be the unit sphere in RN equipped with the normalized Lebesgue surface measure = Also, let pʹ denote the exponent conjugate to p; that is 1/p+1/pʹ = 1.

Let αi(i = 1,2,…, N) be fixed real numbers such that αi ≥ 1. Define the function F: RN × R+R by F(z,ρ)=i=1Nzi2ρ2αi. It is clear that for each fixed zRN, the function F(z, ρ) is a decreasing functions in ρ > 0.

The unique solution of the equation F(z, ρ) = 1 is denoted by ρ(z). In [1], Fabes and Riviére showed that ρ(z) is a metric space in RN, and (RN ρ) is called the mixed homogeneity space related to {αi}i=0N.

For λ > 0, let Aλ be the diagonal N × N matrix


The change of variables related to the space (RN, ρ) is given by the transformation x1=ρα1cosϑ1cosϑN2cosϑN1




where x =(x1 x2 xN) ∈ RN Thus, dx=ρα1JN(x)dρdσ(x), where ρα−1JN(xʹ) is the Jacobian of the above transforms,


It was shown in [1] that JN(xʹ) is a C(SN−1 function in the variable xʹ ∈ SN−1, and that a real constant LN ≥ 1 exists so that 1 ≤ JN (xʹ) ≤ LN.

Let KΩ,ρ(u) = Ω(u)ρ(u)1−α where #x03A9; is a real valued and measurable function on RN with Ω ∈ L1 (SN−1) that satisfies the conditions


The parabolic Marcinkiewicz integral μΩ, which was introduced by Ding, Xue and Yabuta in [2], is defined by




In particular, the authors of [2] proved that the parabolic Littlewood-Paley operator μΩ is bounded for p ∈ (1, ∞) provided that Ω ∈ Lq (SN−1) for q > 1. Subsequently, the study of the Lp boundedness of μΩ under various conditions on the function Ω has been studied by many authors (see for example [37]).

We point out that the class of the operators μΩ is related to the class of the parabolic singular integral operators


The class of the operators TΩ belongs to the class of singular Radon transforms, which was studied by by many mathematicians (we refer the readers, in particular, to [1, 8]).

Although some open problems related to the boundedness of parabolic Marcinklewicz integral in the one- parameter setting remain open, the investigation of Lp estimates of the Marcinkiewicz integral on product spaces has been started (see for example [9, 10].)

Let αi, βj be fixed real numbers with αi, βj ≥ 1 (i = 1,2,…, n and j = 1, 2, …, m). For τ1 = a1 + ib1, τ2 = a2 + ib2 (a1, b1, a2, b2R with a1, a2 > 0), let KΩ,hρ1,ρ2(x,y)=Ω(x,y)h(ρ1(x),ρ2(y))ρ1(x)τ1αρ2(y)τ2β, where α=i=1nαi,β=j=1mβj,h is a measurable function on R+ × R+, and Ω is a real valued and measurable function on Rn × Rm with Ω ∈ L1(SN−1 × Sm−1) satisfying the conditions


We define the parabolic Marcinkiewicz integral operator MΩ,hρ1,ρ2 for fS(Rn × Rm) by




By specializing to the case h = 1 and τ1 = τ2 = 1, plus considering the cases α1 = … = αn = 1 and β1 = … = βm = 1, we obtain that ρ1(u) = |u|, ρ2(v) = |v|, α = n, β = m, and (Rn × Rm, ρ1, ρ2 = (Rn × Rm, |·|, |·|). In this case MΩ,hρ1,ρ2 (denoted by MΩ is just the classical Marcinkiewicz integral on product domains, which was studied by many mathematicians. For instance, the author of [11] gave the L2 boundedness of MΩ if ΩL(logL)2(Sn1×Sm1). Later, it was verified in [12] that MΩ is bounded for all 1 < p < ∞ provided that ΩL(logL)2(Sn1×Sm1). This result was improved (for p = 2) in [13] in which the author established that MΩ is bounded on L2(Rn × Rm) for all ΩL(logL)(Sn1×Sm1). Recently, Al-Qaseem et al found in [14] that the boundedness of MΩ is obtained under the condition ΩL(logL)(Sn1×Sm1) for 1 < p < ∞. Furthermore, they proved that the exponent 1 is the best possible.

Al-Qassem in [15], found that MΩ,h is bounded on Rn × Rm(1 < p < ∞) provided that h is a bounded radial function and Ω is a function in certain block space Bq(0,0)(Sn1×Sm1) for q > 1. He also established the optimality of the condition in the sense that the space Bq(0,0)(Sn1×Sm1) cannot be replaced by Bq(0,ε)(Sn1×Sm1) for any −1 < ε < 0.

On the other hand, Al-Salman in [9] extended the result in [14]. In fact, he proved that MΩ,1ρ1,ρ2 is bounded in Lp(Rn × Rm)(1 < p < ∞) provided that ΩL(logL)(Sn1×Sm1).

We point out that the parabolic singular integral operator on product domains of the form


is being under investigation by one of our graduate students. In fact, he shall prove the Lp boundedness of TΩ, h when ΩLq(Sn1×Sm1) for some q > 1 and h ∈ Δγ(R+ × R+) for some γ > 1, where Δγ(R+ × R+) (for γ > 1) denotes the collection of all measurable functions h: R+ × R+C satisfying


In view of the result in [4]; that is the parabolic Marcinkiewicz integral in the one-parameter setting, defined as in (3), is bounded on Lp(Rn) and the results concerning the classical Marcinkiewicz in the two-parameter setting, a question arises naturally Does the Lp boundedness of the operators MΩ,hρ1,ρ2 hold under the conditions when Ω belongs to the space L(log L)(Sn−1} × Sm−1) or whether it belongs to the block space Bq(0,0)(Sn1×Sm1) and h ∈ Δγ(R+ × R+) for some γ, q > 1?

We shall obtain an affirmative answer to this question, as described in the following theorems.

Let 003E ∈ Lq(Sn−1 × Sm−1) for some 1 < q ≤ 2 and h ∈ Δγ(R+ × R+) for some γ > 1. Then there exists a constant Cp (independent of Ω, h, γ, and q) such that


for |1/p−1/2| < min{1/2, 1γʹ}, where A(γ)=γifγ>2,(γ1)1if1<γ2.

The conclusion from Theorem 1.1 and the application of an extrapolation method as in [16, 17] lead to the following theorem.

Suppose that Ω satisfies (1)–(2) and h ∈ Δγ(R+ × R+) for some γ > 1.

  1. If ΩBq(0,0)(Sn1×Sm1) for some q > 1, then


    for |1/p−1/2| < min{1/2, 1/γʹ};

  2. if ΩL(logL)(Sn1×Sm1), then


    for |1/p−1/2| < min{1/2, 1/γʹ}.

Here and henceforth, the letter C denotes a bounded positive constant that may vary at each occurrence but is independent of the essential variables.

2 Preparation

In this section, we give some auxiliary lemmas used in the sequel. We shall recall the following lemma due to Ricci and Stem.

([18]). Suppose that λis and αis are fixed real numbers, and Γ(t)=(λ1tα1,,λNtαN) is a function from R+ to RN For suitable f, let Mτ be the maximal operator defined on RN by


for xRN Then for 1 < p ≤ ∞, there exists a constant Cp > 0 such that


The constant Cp is independent of λis and f.

Suppose that ais,bis,αis, and βis are fixed real numbers. Let Γ(t)=(a1tα1,,antαn) and Λ(t)=(b1tβ1,,bmtβm), and let MΓ,Λ be the maximal operator defined on Rn × Rm by


for (x, y) ∈ Rn × Rm Then for 1 < p ≤ ∞, there exists a constant Cp > 0 (independent of ais,bis and f) such that


for all fLp Rn × Rm).

It is easy to prove this lemma by using Lemma 2.1 and the inequality MΓ,Λf(x,y)MΛMΓf(x,y), where MΓf(x,y)=MΓf(.,y)(x),MΛf(x,y)=MΛf(x,)(y), and ∘ denotes the composition of operators.

([5]). Suppose that 0 ≤ v ≤ 1. Let m denote the distinct numbers ofi}. Then for u, ξ ∈ RN, we have


where C is independent of u and ξ.

Let θ ≥ 2. For a measurable function h: R+ × R+C and Ω: Sn−1 × Sm−1R, we define the family of measures σΩ, h, t, s: t, sR+} and its corresponding maximal operators σΩ,h,t and MΩ, h θ on Rn × Rm by




where |σΩ, h, t, s| is defined in the same way as σΩ, h, t, s, but with replacing h by |h| and Ω by |Ω|. We write ‖σt, s‖ for the total variation of σt, s and a±r = min{ar, a−r}.

In order to obtain Theorem 1.1, we need to prove the following lemmas.

Suppose that Ω ∈ Lq(Sn−1 × Sm−1) for some q > 1 and satisfies the cancellation conditions (1)-(2). For t, s > 0, let


Then there are constants C and w with 0<w<min{12,m12q,m22q,m1α,m2β} such that


where m1, m2 denote the distinct numbers ofi}, {βj}, respectively

Let Ω∈ Lq(Sn-1× Sm-1) for some q > 1, h ∈ Δγ(R+× R+) for some γ > 1 and θ = 2q′ γ′ Then there are constants C and w (as in Lemma 2.4) such that



hold for all i, jZ, where κ=max{2,γ} The constant C is independen of i, j ξ, η, q, and θ.

Assume that Ω∈L1(Sn−1×Sm−1) and h∈Δγ(R+×R+) for some γ′ > 1. Then for any f∈Lp(Rn×Rm) with γ′<p≤∞ there exists a cons tant C such that


The following lemma can be obtained by applying the arguments (with only minor modifications) used in [4, 19].

Let Ω∈Lq(Sn−1 × Sm−1) for some 1 > q ≤ 2 and θ = 2γʹ. Assume that h ∈ Δγ (R+ × R+) for some γ > 1. Then for any functions {gi, j(.,.), i, jZ} on Rn × Rm, there exists a constant Cr such that


for any r satisfiying |1/r−1/2| < min{1/2, 1/γʹ}.

3 Proof of the main result

We prove Theorem 1.1 by applying the same approaches as in [5, 14], which have their roots in [20]. Let us assume that h ∈ Δγ(R+ × R+) for some γ > 1. Then by Minkowskl’s inequality, we get that


Take θ = 2qʹγʹ For iZ, let {Γi} be a smooth partition of unity in (0, ∞) adapted to the interval Ii=[(θi1),(θi+1)]. Specifically, we require the following:


where Ck is independent of the lacunary sequence θi; iZ}. Define the multiplier operators Mi, j on Rn × Rm by (Mi,jf^)(ξ,η)=Γi(ρ1(ξ))Γj(ρ2(η))f^(ξ,η). Then for any fS(Rn × Rm) and i, jZ, we have f(x,y)=k,lZ(Mi+k,j+lf)(x,y). Therefore, by Minkowski’s inequality we obtain




Thus, it suffices to show for v > 0, that


holds for any p with |1/p−1/2| < min{1/γʹ, 1/2}.

Let us first consider the L2 boundedness of Sk, l(f). By using Plancherels theorem, Fubinis theorem, Lemma 2.5, plus the approaches used in [10], we obtain that


where Δi,j={(ξ,η)Rn×Rm:(ρ1(ξ),ρ2(η))Ii×Ij} and 0 < δ < 1.

Now, let us compute the Lp-norm of Sk, l(f) for p = r. By using Lemma 2.7, and applying the Littlewood-Paley theory plus [[10], (3.20) pp. 1242] see also [[9], Proposition 2.1]), we obtain


By Interpolation between the last inequality and (16), we reach (16). Consequently, the proof of Theorem 1.1 is complete.
