#### Abstract

We obtain the Lipschitz boundedness for a class of fractional multilinear operators with rough kernels on variable exponent Lebesgue spaces. Our results generalize the related conclusions on Lebesgue spaces with constant exponent.

#### 1. Introduction and Results

Let , is homogeneous of degree zero on , denotes the unit sphere in , the fractional multilinear singular integral operator with rough kernel is defined by where denotes the th remainder of the Taylor series of a function defined on at about . More precisely, and the corresponding fractional multilinear maximal operator is defined by

Multilinear operator was first introduced by Caldern in [1], and then Meyer [2] studied it in depth and extended such type of operators. Multilinear singular integral operator was later introduced by Professor Lu during 1999 [3]. Especially as , the fractional multilinear singular integral operator is obviously the commutator operator the commutator is a typical non-convolution singular operator. Since the commutator has a close relation with partial differential equations and pseudo-differential operator, multilinear operator has been receiving more widely attention.

It is well known that the boundedness of and had been obtained on Lebesgue spaces in [4–7]. However, the corresponding results have not been obtained on . Nowadays, there is an evident increase of investigations related to both the theory of the spaces themselves and the operator theory in these spaces [8–11]. This is caused by possible applications to models with nonstandard local growth in elasticity theory, fluid mechanics, and differential equations [12–14]. The purpose of this paper is to study the behaviour of and on variable Lebesgue spaces.

To state the main results of this paper, we need to recall some notions.

*Definition 1. *Suppose a measurable function , for some , then, the variable exponent Lebesgue space is defined by
with norm
We denote
Using this notation we define a class of variable exponent as follows:
The exponent means the conjugate of , namely, holds.

*Definition 2. *For , the homogeneous Lipschitz space is the space of functions , such that
where , , .

*Definition 3. *For , the fractional integral operator with rough kernel is defined by

The corresponding fractional maximal operator with rough kernel is defined by

When , is much more closely related to the elliptic partial equations of second order with variable coefficients. In 1955, Calderón and Zygmund [15] proved the boundedness. In 1971, Muckenhoupt and Wheeden [16] proved the boundedness of with power weights.

In this paper, we state some properties of variable exponents belonging to class .

Proposition 4. *If satisfies
**
Then, one has . *

Recently, Mitsuo Izuki has proved the condition as below.

Theorem A (see [17]). *Suppose that satisfies conditions (12) in Proposition 4. Let , and define the variable exponent by
**
Then, one has that for all ,
**
for all and . *

Next, we will discuss the boundedness of and on variable Lebesgue spaces. We can get and are bounded from to . In fact, the results generalize Theorem A in [17] from classical Lebesgue spaces to variable exponent Lebesgue spaces. Now, let us formulate our results as follows.

Theorem 5. *Suppose that satisfies conditions (12) in Proposition 4. Let , , , and , and define the variable exponent by
**
If , then, there is a , independent of and , such that
*

Theorem 6. *Suppose that satisfies conditions (12) in Proposition 4. Let , , , and , and define the variable exponent by
**
If , then, there is a , independent of and , such that
*

*Remark 7. *We point out that will denote positive constants whose values may change at different places.

#### 2. Lemmas and Proof of Theorems

Lemma 8 (see [15]). *Let be a function on with th order derivatives in for some . Then,
**
where is the cube centered at and having diameter . *

Lemma 9 (see [18]). *For , , we have
*

Lemma 10 (see [18]). *Let , , then,
*

We state the following important lemma.

Lemma 11. *Suppose , , with , , . Then, there exists a constant only depends on , and , such that
*

*Proof. *For any , let the cube be centered at and having the diameter be , where , we have
Below, we give estimates of . Let

Note that . When , by Lemmas 8, 9, and 10, we have
Note that , we have , such that

Below, we give the estimates of . For , we get
For any ,
Thus, by Lemmas 8 and 9, we obtain
And for , we have . Hence,

From the proof above, we obtain

Lemma 12 (see [19]). *If , for all , then, the norm has the following equivalence:
**
where . *

Lemma 13 (see [19], the generalized Hlder inequality). *If , then, for all and for all , we have
*

By a similar method of Ding and Lu [20], it is easy to verify the following result.

Lemma 14. *For any with , we have
**
where depends only on , and . *

Lemma 15 (see [19]). *Given that , such that , then, if and only if . In particular, if either constant equals 1, one can make the other equals 1 as well. *

*Remark 16. *We denote .

Lemma 17 (see [21]). *Suppose that satisfies conditions (12) in Proposition 4. Let , and define the variable exponent by
**
Then, one has that for all ,
*

Lemma 18. *Let , , then, for ,
**
where
*

*Proof. *Since
then,

*Proof of Theorem 5. *Since
by Lemma 12, then, we have
Using the generalized Hlder inequality, then,

Next, we will prove . Fix , without loss of generality we may assume that . Since , by Lemma 15 it will suffice to prove that .

Fix , , such that
define by

Then, by (44), we have . Moreover, by elementary algebra, for all ,
So that by Lemma 14, we have
By Lemma 13, then,
Without loss of generality, we may assume that each is greater than 1, since, otherwise, there is nothing to prove. In this case, in the definition of each norm we may assume that the infimum is taken over by values of which are greater than 1. But then, since for all and , , we have
Therefore, by (46) and Lemma 17, we have

In the same way, we have
Therefore, by (47) and Lemma 17, then,

Hence,
So, we have
This completes the proof of Theorem 5.

By Lemmas 15 and 18 and Theorem 5, the proof of Theorem 6 is directly deduced.
