The best constant of Sobolev inequality in an \(n\)-dimensional Euclidean space. (English) Zbl 1100.46021

The best constant of the Sobolev inequality in an \(n\)-dimensional Euclidean space is found by means of the theory of reproducing kernels and Green functions. The concrete form of the best constant is also found in the case of the Sobolev space \(W^2(\mathbb{R}^n)\) \((n=2,3)\).
