    Maximal theorems and square functions for analytic operators on Lp-spaces

    Full text link
    Let T : Lp --> Lp be a contraction, with p strictly between 1 and infinity, and assume that T is analytic, that is, there exists a constant K such that n\norm{T^n-T^{n-1}} < K for any positive integer n. Under the assumption that T is positive (or contractively regular), we establish the boundedness of various Littlewood-Paley square functions associated with T. As a consequence we show maximal inequalities of the form \norm{\sup_{n\geq 0}\, (n+1)^m\bigl |T^n(T-I)^m(x) \bigr |}_p\,\lesssim\, \norm{x}_p, for any nonnegative integer m. We prove similar results in the context of noncommutative Lp-spaces. We also give analogs of these maximal inequalities for bounded analytic semigroups, as well as applications to R-boundedness properties

    Trees, linear orders and G\^ateaux smooth norms

    Full text link
    We introduce a linearly ordered set Z and use it to prove a necessity condition for the existence of a G\^ateaux smooth norm on C(T), where T is a tree. This criterion is directly analogous to the corresponding equivalent condition for Fr\'echet smooth norms. In addition, we prove that if C(T) admits a G\^ateaux smooth lattice norm then it also admits a lattice norm with strictly convex dual norm.Comment: A different version of this paper is to appear in J. London Math. So

    Gruenhage compacta and strictly convex dual norms

    Full text link
    We prove that if K is a Gruenhage compact space then C(K)* admits an equivalent, strictly convex dual norm. As a corollary, we show that if X is a Banach space and X* is the |.|-closed linear span of K, where K is a Gruenhage compact in the w*-topology and |.| is equivalent to a coarser, w*-lower semicontinuous norm on X*, then X* admits an equivalent, strictly convex dual norm. We give a partial converse to the first result by showing that if T is a tree, then C(T)* admits an equivalent, strictly convex dual norm if and only if T is a Gruenhage space. Finally, we present some stability properties satisfied by Gruenhage spaces; in particular, Gruenhage spaces are stable under perfect images

    Polynomial bounds on the Sobolev norms of the solutions of the nonlinear wave equation with time dependent potential

    Full text link
    We consider the Cauchy problem for the nonlinear wave equation uttβˆ’Ξ”xu+q(t,x)u+u3=0u_{tt} - \Delta_x u +q(t, x) u + u^3 = 0 with smooth potential q(t,x)β‰₯0q(t, x) \geq 0 having compact support with respect to xx. The linear equation without the nonlinear term u3u^3 and potential periodic in tt may have solutions with exponentially increasing as tβ†’βˆž t \to \infty norm H1(Rx3)H^1({\mathbb R}^3_x). In [2] it was established that adding the nonlinear term u3u^3 the H1(Rx3)H^1({\mathbb R}^3_x) norm of the solution is polynomially bounded for every choice of qq. In this paper we show that Hk(Rx3)H^k({\mathbb R}^3_x) norm of this global solution is also polynomially bounded. To prove this we apply a different argument based on the analysis of a sequence {Yk(nΟ„k)}n=0∞\{Y_k(n\tau_k)\}_{n = 0}^{\infty} with suitably defined energy norm Yk(t)Y_k(t) and $0 < \tau_k <1.
