The intrinsic square function. (English) Zbl 1213.42072

Summary: We show that the Lusin area function and essentially all of its real-variable generalizations are pointwise dominated by an “intrinsic” square function, and that this latter function is, for all practical purposes, no larger than a “generic” square function.
