Interpolation of Besov spaces. (English) Zbl 0646.46030

The paper deals with Besov spaces \(B^{\alpha}_ q(L_ p)\), which are defined by using the modulus of smoothness. The connections between Besov spaces and approximation by dyadic splines are established. In this way, the spaces \(B^{\alpha}_ q(L_ p)\) are identified with certain sequence spaces. Making use of known results about the interpolation of these sequence spaces [see J. Peetre, New thoughts on Besov spaces; Duke Univ. Math. Ser. I (1976; Zbl 0356.46038)] the authors obtain interpolation theorems for Besov spaces.
