Beurling–Ahlfors Commutators on Weighted Morrey Spaces and Applications to Beltrami Equations

  • 13 Accesses


Let \(p\in (1, \infty )\), ? ? (0,1) and \(w\in A_{p}({\mathbb C}).\) In this article, the authors obtain a boundedness (resp., compactness) characterization of the Beurling–Ahlfors commutator \([\mathcal B, b]\) on the weighted Morrey space \(L_{w}^{p, \kappa }(\mathbb C)\) via \(\text {BMO}({\mathbb C})\) [resp., \(\text {CMO}({\mathbb C})\)], where \(\mathcal B\) denotes the Beurling–Ahlfors transform and \(b\in \text {BMO}({\mathbb C})\) [resp., \(\text {CMO}({\mathbb C})\)]. Moreover, an application to the Beltrami equation is also given.
