Approximation by convolutions

Robert E. Edwards

Vol. 15 (1965), No. 1, 85–95
Abstract

This paper is concerned mainly with approximating functions on closed subsets P of a locally compact Abelian group G by absolute-convex combinations of convolutions f g, with f and g extracted from bounded subsets of conjugate Lebesgue spaces Lp(G) and Lp(G). It is shown that the Helson subsets of G can be characterised in terms of this approximation problem, and that the solubility of this problem for P is closely related to questions concerning certain multipliers of Lp(G). The final theorem shows in particular that the P. J. Cohen factorisation theorem for L1(G) fails badly for Lp(G) whenever G is infinite compact Abelian and p > 1.
