A Note on Capacity and Hausdorff Measure in Homogeneous Spaces

  • Tord Sjödin


ggt We consider analogoues of classical Riesz capacity Cα and Hausdorff measure Hα in a homogeneous space (X,d,µ) . We prove that, under mild regularity conditions on (X,d,µ), the usual relations between Cα and Hα hold. The key step in the proof is a version of the so called Frostman Lemma in a homogeneous space.
