Properties and examples of \((L^ p,L^ q)\) multipliers. (English) Zbl 0655.43003

We discuss conditions pertaining to the “rate of decay” of bounded sequences which almost characterize the space of multipliers from \(L^ 2(G)\) to \(L^ q(G)\), denoted by M(2,q), for G a compact abelian group and \(q>2\). Specific examples of multipliers are constructed to illustrate that M(2,q)\(\subseteq M(2,p)\) if \(q>p\). The spectrum of a multiplier \(\phi\in M(2,p)\), for \(p>2\), as an operator from \(L^ p\) to \(L^ p\) is seen to be \(\{\) \(\phi\) (Ĝ)\(\}^{ci}\). It is shown that for some values of p and q there are examples of multipliers from \(L^ p\) to certain quotient spaces of \(L^ q\) which are not the restrictions of multipliers from \(L^ p\) to \(L^ q\). Quasi-idempotent multipliers from \(H^ 1(T)\) to \(H^ p(T)\) for \(p>1\) are characterized.
