C1 changes of variable: Beurling-Helson type theorem and Hörmander conjecture on Fourier multipliers

  • V. Lebedev
  • A. Olevskiî


We prove that if aC1 smooth change of variable ϕ:ℝ→ℝ generates a bounded composition operatorff°ϕ in the spaceAp(ℝ)=L p ,p≠2, then φ is linear (affine).

We also prove that for a nonlinearC1 mapping φ, the norms of exponentialseiλϕ as Fourier multipliers inL p (ℝ) tend to infinity (λ∈ℝ,|λ|→∞). In both results the condition φ∈C1 is sharp, it cannot be replaced by the Lipschitz condition.
