Abstract

Some properties of distributions f satisfying x · ∇ f ∈ Lp (ℝn), 1 ≤ p < ∞, are studied. The operator x · ∇ is the generator of a semi-group of dilations. We first give Sobolev type inequalities with respect to the operator x · ∇. Using the inequalities, we also show that if $f \in L-\rm loc ^p (\mathbb R^n)$, x · ∇ f ∈ Lp (ℝn) and |x|n/p|f(x)| vanishes at infinity, then f belongs to Lp (ℝn). One of the Sobolev type inequalities is shown to be equivalent to the Hardy inequality in L2 (ℝn).
