The autor proves a Milne type inequality [see S. C. Milne, Adv. Math. 35, 129-157 (1980; Zbl 0449.26015)], namely for every non- increasing even function \(\varphi\) on \([0,\infty)\) and every measurable a.e. finite function \(f\) defined on the cube \(I^ n=[0,1]^ n\) in \(\mathbb{R}^ n\), and for any \(\delta_ i\in(0,1]\) \((i=1,\dots,n)\) we have \[ \iint_{| s-t|\leq\delta_ 1\cdots\delta_ n/4^ n}\varphi(f^*(s)-f^*(t))ds dt\leq\iint_{| x_ i-y_ i|\leq\delta,i=1,\dots,n}\varphi(f(x)-f(y))dx dy. \] Here \(f^*\) denotes the non-increasing rearrangement of \(f\), \(f^*(t)=\inf\{s: m(\{x: | f(x)|>s\})\leq t\}\). This gives a positive answer to a question posed by P. Oswald [Moduli of continuity of equimeasurable functions and approximation by algebraic polynomials in \(L^ p\). Thesis, Odessa OGU (1978)]. As an application, the author proves that for every \(f\) in \(L^ p(I^ n)\) \((0<p<\infty)\), \(\omega_ p(f^*;\delta)\leq C_{p,n}\overline \omega_ p(f,\delta)\) for \(0\leq\delta\leq 1\), where \(\omega_ p\) is the usual \(L^ 2\)-modulus of continuity and \(\overline\omega_ p(f,\delta)=\inf\{\omega_ p(f;\delta_ 1,\dots,\delta_ n); \delta _ 1\dots\delta_ n=\delta\), \(0\leq\delta_ i\leq 1\}\). The case of \(1\leq p<\infty\) was earlier proved by Oswald [loc. cit.].
