Einige neuere Entwicklungen in der Theorie der Funktionenräume. (Some new developments in the theory of function spaces). (German) Zbl 0638.46025
This note is a historical summary of the theory of function spaces. From the year 1935 to 1938 S. L. Sobolev has published three papers and has developed his function spaces \(W\) \(k_ p\) which are called Sobolev spaces. Also, there are many investigations of function spaces such as homogeneous spaces, anisotropic spaces, spaces of Sobolev-Orlicz type which are different from \(W\) \(k_ p\). Around 1960, it was established the theory of Hölder-Zygmund spaces, Bessel-Lipschitz spaces, Hardy spaces and BMO spaces. It is asked to find a systematic principle to investigations of function spaces. The first results of this direction are succeeded by help of abstract interpolation theory (real and complex method). By other powerful tools, it was established the theory of \(B\) \(s_{p,q}\) or \(F\) \(s_{p,q}\) around 1970 to 1975.
