Hardy and uncertainty inequalities on stratified Lie groups

We prove various Hardy-type and uncertainty inequalities on a stratified Lie group $G$. In particular, we show that the operators $T_\alpha: f \mapsto |.|^{-\alpha} L^{-\alpha/2} f$, where $|.|$ is a homogeneous norm, $0 < \alpha < Q/p$, and $L$ is the sub-Laplacian, are bounded on the Lebesgue space $L^p(G)$. As consequences, we estimate the norms of these operators sufficiently precisely to be able to differentiate and prove a logarithmic uncertainty inequality. We also deduce a general version of the Heisenberg-Pauli-Weyl inequality, relating the $L^p$ norm of a function $f$ to the $L^q$ norm of $|.|^\beta f$ and the $L^r$ norm of $L^{\delta/2} f$.

In 1956, Bott in his celebrated paper on closed geodesics and Sturm intersection theory, proved an Index Iteration Formula for closed geodesics on Riemannian manifolds. Some years later, Ekeland improved this formula in the case of convex Hamiltonians and, in 1999, Long generalized the Bott iteration formula by putting in its natural symplectic context and constructing a very effective Index Theory. The literature about this formula is quite broad and the dynamical implications in the Hamiltonian world (e. Read More

We define the Hardy spaces of free noncommutative functions on the noncommutative polydisc and the noncommutative ball and study their basic properties. Our technique combines the general methods of noncommutative function theory and asymptotic formulae for integration over the unitary group. The results are the first step in developing the general theory of free noncommutative bounded symmetric domains on the one hand and in studying the asymptotic free noncommutative analogues of classical spaces of analytic functions on the other.

The paper deals with continuous homomorphisms $S \ni s \mapsto T_s \in L(E)$ of amenable semigroups $S$ into the algebra $L(E)$ of all bounded linear operators on a Banach space $E$. For a closed linear subspace $F$ of $E$, sufficient conditions are given under which there exists a projection $P \in L(E)$ onto $F$ that commutes with all $T_s$. And when $E$ is a Hilbert space, sufficient conditions are given for the existence of an invertible operator $R \in L(E)$ such that all $R T_s R^{-1}$ are isometries. Read More


Given two orthogonal projections P and Q, we are interested in all unitary operators U such that UP=QU and UQ=PU. Such unitaries U have previously been constructed by Wang, Du, and Dou and also by one of the authors. One purpose of this note is to compare these constructions. Read More


The main result: for every $m\in\mathbb{N}$ and $\omega>0$ there exists an isometric embedding $F:[0,1]\to L_1[0,1]$ which is nowhere differentiable, but for each $t\in [0,1]$ the image $F_t$ is an $m$-times continuously differentiable function with absolute values of all of its $m$ derivatives bounded from above by $\omega$.

A subset of a discrete group $G$ is called completely Sidon if its span in $C^*(G)$ is completely isomorphic to the operator space version of the space $\ell_1$ (i.e. $\ell_1$ equipped with its maximal operator space structure). Read More


The purpose of this paper is to establish bilinear estimates in Besov spaces generated by the Dirichlet Laplacian on a domain of Euclidian spaces. These estimates are proved by using the gradient estimates for heat semigroup together with the Bony paraproduct formula and the boundedness of spectral multipliers. Read More


We propose a new approach to study the existence of maximizers for the variational problem associated with Sobolev type inequalities both in the subcritical case and critical case under the equivalent constraints. Our method is based on a link between the attainability of the supremum in our variational problem and the attainablity of the supremum of a particular function on $(0,\infty)$. Analyzing carefully this function on $(0,\infty)$, we obtain the existence and non-existence of maximizers for our variational problem. Read More
