The author studies mixed norm spaces that arise in connection with embeddings of Sobolev and Besov spaces. Let \(\sigma\in \mathbb R\). Denote by \(\Lambda^\sigma(\mathbb R)\) the space of all measurable functions \(f\) such that \(\| f\| _{\Lambda^\sigma(\mathbb R)}\equiv \sup_{t>0}t^\sigma[f^\ast(t)- f^\ast(2t)]<\infty\). In particular, the author establishes the following Sobolev type inequalities in terms of these mixed norms: Assume that \(1\leq p<\infty\), \(n\geq 2\) \((n\in\mathbb N)\), and that \(\alpha_k\) \((k=1,\dots,n)\) are positive numbers such that \(\alpha\equiv n(\sum_{k=1}^n\frac1{\alpha_k})^{-1}\leq \frac np\). Let \(\sigma_k=\frac1p-\alpha_k\) and \(V_k\equiv L^p_{\widehat{x_k}}({\mathbb R}^{n-1}) [\Lambda^p_{x_k}(\mathbb R)]\). Then \(\bigcap_{k=1}^n V_k\subset L^{q^\ast, p}({\mathbb R}^n)\), where \(q^\ast=\frac{np}{n-\alpha p}\) and \(L^{q^\ast, p}({\mathbb R}^n)\) denotes the Lorentz space. Applying these results, the author obtains optimal constants in embedding theorems for anisotropic Besov spaces. This gives an extension of the estimates proved by Bourgain, Brezis and Mironescu for isotropic Besov spaces.
