The operator \(K\) is defined on the space of locally integrable functions on the positive real line \((0,\infty)\) by \[ K(f)(x)=v(x)\int^x_0 k(x,y)f(y)u(y)dy, \] where \(u\), \(v\) are locally integrable functions, and for some finite positive constant \(D\), \(K\) satisfies \(D^{-1}(k(x,y)+k(y,z)\leq k(x,z)\leq D(k(x,y)+k(y,z))\), for \(0\leq z<y<x\).
The constants \(A_0\), \(A_1\) are also defined as suprema for \(t>0\) of \[ \begin{aligned} A_0(t) &=\Biggl(\int^\infty_t k(x,t)^q|v(x)|^qdx\Biggr)^{1/q} \Biggl(\int^t_0|u(y)|^{p'}dy\Biggr)^{1/p'};\\ A_1(t) &=\Biggl(\int^\infty_t|v(x)|^qdx\Biggr)^{1/q} \Biggl(\int^t_0k(t,y)^{p'}|u(y)|^{p'}dy\Biggr)^{1/p'}.\end{aligned} \] Results of the first part of this paper indicate that if \(1\leq p\leq q<\infty\), then \(|K(f)|_q\leq C|f|_p\) for some finite constant \(C\) if and only if \(A=\max(A_0,A_1)\) is finite.
In the case \(1\leq q<p<\infty\), it is shown that the \(L^p\)-estimate for \(K\) is valid if and only if \(B=\max(B_0,B_1)\) is finite, where \(B_0\), \(B_1\) are defined in terms of \(r\)th norms of \(A_0\), \(A_1\). Further results of the paper involve estimates for the operator \(K\) in Lorentz spaces and in Orlicz spaces.
Estimates are derived for the operator \(H\), defined as \(K\) with \(v(y)k(x,y)=1\), in cases where \(u\), \(f\) are non-increasing.
