Absolute continuity and $\alpha$-numbers on the real line

Abstract

Let μ, ν be Radon measures on , with μ nonatomic and ν doubling, and write μ = μa + μs for the Lebesgue decomposition of μ relative to ν. For an interval I , define αμ,ν(I) := W1(μI,νI), the Wasserstein distance of normalised blow-ups of μ and ν restricted to I. Let Sν be the square function

Sν2(μ) = IDαμ,ν2(I)χ I,

where D is the family of dyadic intervals of side-length at most 1. I prove that Sν(μ) is finite μa almost everywhere and infinite μs almost everywhere. I also prove a version of the result for a nondyadic variant of the square function Sν(μ). The results answer the simplest “n = d = 1” case of a problem of J. Azzam, G. David and T. Toro.
