Boundedness of Toeplitz type operator associated to singular integral operator satisfying a variant of Hörmander’s condition on spaces with variable exponent
Journal of Inequalities and Applications volume 2014, Article number: 369 (2014)
In this paper, the boundedness for some Toeplitz type operator related to some singular integral operator satisfying a variant of Hörmander’s condition on spaces with variable exponent is obtained by using a sharp estimate of the operator.
As the development of singular integral operators (see [1, 2]), their commutators have been well studied (see [3, 4]). In [5, 6], some singular integral operators satisfying a variant of Hörmander’s condition and the boundedness for the operators and their commutators are obtained (see ). In [7–9], some Toeplitz type operators related to singular integral operators and strongly singular integral operators are introduced and the boundedness for the operators generated by and Lipschitz functions are obtained. In the last years, the theory of spaces with variable exponent has been developed because of its connections with some questions in fluid dynamics, calculus of variations, differential equations and elasticity (see [10–13] and their references). Karlovich and Lerner study the boundedness of the commutators of singular integral operators on spaces with variable exponent (see ). Motivated by these papers, the main purpose of this paper is to introduce some Toeplitz type operator related to some singular integral operator satisfying a variant of Hörmander’s condition and prove the boundedness for the operator on spaces with variable exponent by using a sharp estimate of the operator.
