Mathematische Zeitschrift Some remarks on the Hardy-Littlewood maximal function on variable Lp spaces

We show that any pointwise multiplier for BMO(R) generates a function p from the class P(Rn) of those functions for which the Hardy-Littlewood maximal operator is bounded on the variable L space. In particular, this gives a positive answer to Diening’s conjecture saying that there are discontinuous functions which nevertheless belong to P(Rn). Mathematics… (More)
