We study the Poincaré inequality in Sobolev spaces with variable exponent. Under a rather mild and sharp condition on the exponent p we show that the inequality holds. This condition is satisfied e.g. if the exponent p is continuous in the closure of a convex domain. We also give an essentially sharp condition for the exponent p as to when there exists an imbedding from the Sobolev space to the space of bounded functions.

An inequality, which generalizes and unifies some recently proved Carlson type inequalities, is proved. The inequality contains a certain number of “blocks” and it is shown that these blocks are, in a sense, optimal and cannot be removed or essentially changed. The proof is based on a special equivalent representation of a concave function (see [6, pp. 320-325]). Our Carlson type inequality is used to characterize Peetre’s interpolation functor $\u27e8{\u27e9}_{\phi}$ (see [26]) and its Gagliardo closure on couples of...

We compare the yields of two methods to obtain Bernstein type pointwise estimates for the derivative of a multivariate polynomial in a domain where the polynomial is assumed to have sup norm at most 1. One method, due to Sarantopoulos, relies on inscribing ellipses in a convex domain K. The other, pluripotential-theoretic approach, mainly due to Baran, works for even more general sets, and uses the pluricomplex Green function (the Zaharjuta-Siciak extremal function). When the inscribed ellipse method...

Some boundedness and VMO results are proved for a function f integrable on a cube ${Q}_{0}$, starting from an integral bound.
