The main concern of this paper is to study the boundedness of singular integrals related to the Monge–Ampère equation established by Caffarelli and Gutiérrez. They obtained the \(L^2\) boundedness. Since then the \(L^p, 1<p<\infty \), weak (1,1) and the boundedness for these operators on atomic Hardy space were obtained by several authors. It was well known that the geometric conditions on measures play a crucial role in the theory of the Hardy space. In this paper, we establish the Hardy space \(H^p_{\mathcal F}\) via the Littlewood–Paley theory with the Monge–Ampère measure satisfying the doubling property together with the noncollapsing condition, and show the \(H^p_{\mathcal F}\) boundedness of Monge–Ampère singular integrals. The approach is based on the \(L^2\) theory and the main tool is the discrete Calderón reproducing formula associated with the doubling property only.
