Nonnegative kernels and 1-rectifiability in the Heisenberg group

Vasileios Chousionis and Sean Li

Vol. 10 (2017), No. 6, 1407–1428

Let E be a 1-regular subset of the Heisenberg group . We prove that there exists a 1-homogeneous kernel K1 such that if E is contained in a 1-regular curve, the corresponding singular integral is bounded in L2(E). Conversely, we prove that there exists another 1-homogeneous kernel K2 such that the L2(E)-boundedness of its corresponding singular integral implies that E is contained in a 1-regular curve. These are the first non-Euclidean examples of kernels with such properties. Both K1 and K2 are weighted versions of the Riesz kernel corresponding to the vertical component of . Unlike the Euclidean case, where all known kernels related to rectifiability are antisymmetric, the kernels K1 and K2 are even and nonnegative.
