Rossmann, Jürgen (ed.) et al., The Maz’ya anniversary collection. Vol. 2: Rostock conference on functional analysis, partial differential equations and applications, Rostock, Germany, August 31-September 4, 1998. Basel: Birkhäuser. Oper. Theory, Adv. Appl. 110, 323-343 (1999).
The author gives a good survey of the trace inequalities of the type \(\|Tf\|_{L^q(d\omega)}\leq C\|f\|_{L^p(dx)}\). A number of well-known results are presented under the following unifying point of view: for different operators \(T\) to find a condition (mainly in terms of capacity) on the weight \(\omega\) for the trace inequality to be true. The survey is completed by a new result for the Riesz potential \(I_\alpha=(-\Delta)^{-\frac{\alpha}{2}}\).
For the entire collection see [Zbl 0923.00035].
