Commutators of Littlewood-Paley operators

  • YanPing Chen

Let bL loc(ℝ n ) and L denote the Littlewood-Paley operators including the Littlewood-Paley g function, Lusin area integral and g λ * function. In this paper, the authors prove that the L p boundedness of commutators [b, L] implies that b ∈ BMO(ℝ n ). The authors therefore get a characterization of the L p -boundedness of the commutators [b, L]. Notice that the condition of kernel function of L is weaker than the Lipshitz condition and the Littlewood-Paley operators L is only sublinear, so the results obtained in the present paper are essential improvement and extension of Uchiyama’s famous result.
