where μ is a Borel measure, denotes the ball with center x and radius . A metric space equipped with such a measure μ is called a space of homogeneous type. It is well known that the measure doubling condition in the analysis on spaces of homogeneous type is a key assumption, such as that Euclidean spaces with weighted measures satisfy the doubling property (1.1).
where is a positive constant, d is a dimension of the underlying spaces, , . Such a measure does not satisfy the doubling condition. For example, Tolsa  established Calderón-Zygmund theory for a nondoubling measure and introduced the RBMO spaces, a variant of the space BMO, and he proved that Calderón-Zygmund operators are bounded from into . Nazarov et al.  showed that if T is a Calderón-Zygmund operator bounded on , then T is bounded on for all and from into .
Recently, Hytönen  gave a new class of metric measures spaces (instead of ), which are called non-homogeneous spaces, the measure μ satisfies the upper doubling condition (see definition 1.3). The new class of metric measures spaces are sufficiently general to include in a natural way both the space of homogeneous type and a metric space with the mild volume growth condition.
Anh and Doung  established the boundedness of Calderón-Zygmund operator on various function spaces on and they extended the work of Tolsa on the non-homogeneous spaces to a more general non-homogeneous spaces .
Meanwhile, multilinear Calderón-Zygmund theory has been studied by many researchers. The theory was introduced by Coifman and Meyer  in 1975 and it was further investigated by Grafakos and Torres . Chen and Fan [7, 8] obtained some estimates for the bilinear singular integral. Xu  obtained the boundedness of a multilinear Calderón-Zygmund operator on , .
Yabuta  introduced a generalized operator: a Calderón-Zygmund operator of type , which generalizes the classical Calderón-Zygmund operator. Maldonado and Naibo  developed a theory of the bilinear Calderón-Zygmund operator of type (see Definition 1.4) and extended some results of Yabuta.
Theorem A 
Consider , and let T be a bilinear Calderón-Zygmund operator of type in . If and such that , then T can be extended to a bounded operator from into , where or should be replaced by if or , respectively.
In this paper, we study the boundedness of a bilinear Calderón-Zygmund operator of type on a non-homogeneous metric space, where we only assume . And we also note that the condition of kernel (1.5) is more general than the size condition defined by Hu . So this is a new result, which generalizes some works of Maldonado and Naibo  and Anh and Doung  on . As an application, we investigate the boundedness of the bilinear Calderón-Zygmund operator of type over a Morrey space on .
Before stating our main results, we fix some notations and define some terminologies. Throughout this paper, a ball Q denotes which is equipped with a fixed center and radius . The center and radius of Q are denoted by and . For and , the notation stands for the concentric dilation of Q. For notational convenience, we will occasionally write . The following notions of geometrically doubling and upper doubling measures μ are originally from Hytönen .
We finally observe that in the sequel the letter C will be used to denote various constants which do not depend on the functions.
Definition 1.1 A metric space is called geometrically doubling if there exists a number such that any open ball can be covered by at most N balls .
is geometrically doubling.
For any , any ball can be covered by at most balls .
For every , any ball can contain at most centers of disjoint balls .
There exists such that any ball can contain at most M centers of disjoint balls .
For any fixed , is increasing.
The inequality holds for all , .
for all , and .
Remark 1 If we take the dominating function to be , then the measure doubling is a special case of upper doubling. On the other hand, a Radon measure μ as in (1.2) on is also an upper doubling measure by taking the dominating function .
In this paper, we assume that is a geometrically doubling metric spaces and the measure μ is an upper doubling measure. And we denote by for brevity.
A new example of operators with kernel satisfying (1.3) and (1.4) is called Bergman-type operator; it appeared in .
Now we define bilinear Calderón-Zygmund kernel of type and the corresponding bilinear Calderón-Zygmund operators.
for all , and .
for some () and , then is said to be a bilinear Calderón-Zygmund operator of type .
Note that for all , and . When , , the linear Calderón-Zygmund operator of type is the Calderón-Zygmund operator defined by Anh and Doung , so our results are more general.
the constant C depends only on , , p.
Next, we give the boundedness of the bilinear Calderón-Zygmund operator of type over Morrey space on (for the Morrey space see Definition 3.1).
where and , .
Before we prove Theorem 1.5, we need some notations and lemmas.
For , a ball is said to be -doubling if .
Lemma 2.2 
If are of compatible size, then .
If are non--doubling balls (), then .
In what follows, unless α, β are specified otherwise, by a doubling ball we mean a -doubling with a fixed number , where n can be viewed as a geometric dimension of the spaces.
which is introduced by Lerner  when μ is Lebesgue measure and . It obvious that the operator is strictly controlled by the 2-fold product of .
we denote . By the Lebesgue differential theorem, it is easy to see that for any and μ-a.e. .
The proof of Lemma 2.3 needs a slight modification of the proof of Theorem 4.2 in , so we omit the details.
for any and for every .
We will use the same methods several times.
Combining all the estimates for with , we get (2.9).
Since we proved (2.8) and (2.9), (2.7) holds obviously. □
Now we give the proof of Theorem 1.5.
We recall the definition of the Morrey space with non-doubling measure.
As is easily seen, the space is a Banach space with its norm. The Morrey space norm reflects local regularity of f more precisely than the Lebesgue space norm. It is easy to see from Hölder’s inequality that whenever . Moreover, the definition of the spaces is independent of the constant , and the norms for different choice of are equivalent, see [15–18] for details. We will denote by .
For the proof of Theorem 1.6, we need some lemmas.
Lemma 3.2 
Now we are ready to give the proof of Theorem 1.6.
