A characterization of two weight norm inequalities for maximal singular integrals with one doubling measure

Michael Lacey, Eric T. Sawyer and Ignacio Uriarte-Tuero

Vol. 5 (2012), No. 1, 1–60

Let σ and ω be positive Borel measures on with σ doubling. Suppose first that 1 < p 2. We characterize boundedness of certain maximal truncations of the Hilbert transform T from Lp(σ) to Lp(ω) in terms of the strengthened Ap condition

(sQ(x)pdω(x))1p(sQ(x)p dσ(x))1p C|Q|,

where sQ(x) = |Q|(|Q| + |x xQ|), and two testing conditions. The first applies to a restricted class of functions and is a strong-type testing condition,

QT(χEσ)(x)pdω(x) C 1Qdσ(x) for all E Q,

and the second is a weak-type or dual interval testing condition,

QT(χQfσ)(x)dω(x) C2(Q|f(x)|pdσ(x))1p(Qdω(x))1p

for all intervals Q in and all functions f Lp(σ). In the case p > 2 the same result holds if we include an additional necessary condition, the Poisson condition

( r=1|I r|σ|Ir|p1 =0 2 |(Ir)()|χ(Ir)()(y))pdω(y) C r=1|I r|σ|Ir|p ,

for all pairwise disjoint decompositions Q = r=1Ir of the dyadic interval Q into dyadic intervals Ir. We prove that analogues of these conditions are sufficient for boundedness of certain maximal singular integrals in n when σ is doubling and 1 < p < . Finally, we characterize the weak-type two weight inequality for certain maximal singular integrals T in n when 1 < p < , without the doubling assumption on σ, in terms of analogues of the second testing condition and the Ap condition.
