Abstract

We show that the multiplicator space MX of an rearrangement invariant (r.i.) space X on

0; 1 and the nice part N

0

X of X; that is, the set of all aAX for which the subspaces generated

by sequences of dilations and translations of a are uniformly complemented, coincide when the

space X is separable. In the general case, the nice part is larger than the multiplicator space.

Several examples of descriptions of MX and N

0

X for concrete X are presented.

_

The spaces MX and N

0

X coincide when X is a separable space but in the non-

separable case the nice part can be larger than the multiplicator space. Such a

description is helpful in the proofs of properties of N

0

X and it motivates us to

investigate more the multiplicator space MX: We will describe MX for concrete

r.i. spaces X as Lorentz, Orlicz and Marcinkiewicz spaces. Suitable results on N

0

X;

especially when X is a Marcinkiewicz space M

j

; are given.

The paper is organized as follows. In Section 1 we collect some necessary

denitions and notations.

Section 2 contains results on the multiplicator space MX of a r.i. space X on

0; 1: At rst we collect its properties. After that the multiplicator space MX is

described for concrete spaces like Lorentz L

p;j

spaces, Orlicz L

F

spaces and

Marcinkiewicz M

j

spaces. The main result here is Theorem 1 which gives necessary

and sufcient condition for the tensor product operator to be bounded between

Marcinkiewicz spaces M

j

:

In Section 3, we consider a subspace N

0

X of X generated by dilations and

translations in r.i. space on 0; 1 of a decreasing function from X: The main result of

the paper is Theorem 2 showing that the multiplicator space MX is a subset of the

nice part N

0

X of X and that they are equal when a space X is separable. In the

general case, the nice part is larger than the multiplicator space (cf. Example 2). Here

we apply results on multiplicators from Section 2 to the description of N

0

X:

Special attention is taken about N

0

X when X is a Marcinkiewicz space M

j

(see

Corollary 5 and Theorem 3). Stability properties of the class N

0

with respect to the

complex and real interpolation methods are presented. There is also given, in

Theorem 7, a characterization of L

p

-spaces among the r.i. spaces on 0; 1; which is

saying that r.i. space X on 0; 1 coincides with L

p

0; 1 for some 1pppNif and only

if X and its associated space X

0

belong to the class N

0

:

Finally, in Section 4 we show that, in general, you cannot compare the results on

the interval 0; 1 with the results on 0; N and vice versa.

:

Let us note that the power function jt t

a

with 0oao1 does not satisfy

inequality (4) but there are functions jAC which satisfy the estimate jtpKjt

2

for some positive number K and for every tA0; 1: This estimate gives, of course, the

supermultiplicativity of j on 0; 1:

Example 1. For each l40 there exists a alA0; 1 such that the function

j

We nish this part with the imbeddings of Caldero nLozanovski construction on

Since #: MX

-X

I I; i 0; 1; is bounded with the norm p1 and the

Caldero n construction is an interpolation method for positive bilinear operators

(cf. [C]) it follows that

(ii) When r is a supermultiplicative function the Caldero nLozanovski construc-

tion is an interpolation method for positive bilinear operators (see [As97,M]

Note that the inclusions in Proposition 4 can be strict. For the spaces X

4. Additional remarks and results

First we describe the difference between the cases on 0; 1 and 0; N: Let X0; N

denote an r.i. space on 0; N and X fxAX0; N : xt 0 for t41g the

corresponding r.i. space on 0; 1: We use here also the notion X0; NANfrom the

paper [HS99, p. 56] (cf. also our explanation after Denition 2). Let us present

examples showing that no one of the following statements:

(i) X0; NAN;

(ii) XAN

0

implies the other one, in general.

Example 3. The Orlicz space L

F

p

0; N; where F

p

p

to the class N: On the other hand, the lower Boyd index a

L

Fp

of L

F

p

on 0; 1 equals 0

and so ML

F

L

N

: Therefore, by Theorem 4, L

.

Example 4. Consider the function

where 0obpao1: Then j is a quasi-concave function on 0; N; i.e., jt is

increasing on 0; N and jt=t is decreasing on 0; N: Let * j be the smallest

concave majorant of j: Then

sup

In fact, for every n 1; 2; y; we can choose tA0; 1 such that nto1: Then

same time for L

with p 1=a on 0; 1 we have, by (3), that ML

:

The reason of non-equivalences (i) and (ii) is coming from the fact that the dilation

operator s

t

in r.i. spaces on 0; N does not satisfy an equation of the form

jjs

t

xjj

X0;N

f tjjxjj

X0;N

; for xAX0; N and for all t40:

If this equation is satised, then the function f t is a power function f t t

a

for

some aA0; 1 and then the above statements (i) and (ii) are equivalent. This

observation allows us to improve, for example, Theorem 4.2 from [HS99]: if

We can characterize NL

Theorem 8. If 1oppqoN; then NL

Proof. Let aANL

Therefore, similarly as in the proof of Theorem 2, we can show that

and, by Theorem 1.14 in [A97] together with property (c), we obtain aAL

Conversely, if aAL

p

then, by using property (c), Theorem 1.14 in [A97] and

equality (19), we get (18) for all n of the form 2

m
