where α (n) is the volume of the unit η-ball in H$ and μ(ί)< oo is the Lebesgue measure of the set Et = {x: u(x)>t}. Note that μ(ι) = \Ε*\ where E* = {x: ii*(x)>f} and |E*| denotes the Lebesgue measure of E*. The purpose of this paper is to show that if μ is absolutely continuous and equality holds in (1), then u is almost every where equal to a translate of u*. We also construct a C°° example which shows that this may not be true if μ is continuous but not absolutely continuous. More generally…
