We obtain the sharp bounds of p-adic Hardy operators on p-adic central Morrey spaces and p-adic -central BMO spaces, respectively. We also establish the -central BMO estimates for commutators of p-adic Hardy operators on p-adic central Morrey spaces.
In the past decades, the field of -adic numbers has been intensively used in theoretical and mathematical physics (see [1–9] and references therein). As a consequence, new mathematical problems have emerged, among which we refer to [10, 11] for Riesz potentials [12–16], for -adic pseudodifferential equations, and so forth. In the past few years, there is an increasing interest in the study of harmonic analysis on -adic field and their various generalizations and the related theory of operators and spaces; see, for example [17–27].
For a prime number , let be the field of -adic numbers. It is defined as the completion of the field of rational numbers with respect to the non-Archimedean -adic norm . This norm is defined as follows: ; if any nonzero rational number is represented as , where is an integer and integers , are indivisible by , then . It is easy to see that the norm satisfies the following properties: Moreover, if , then . It is well known that is a typical model of non-Archimedean local fields. From the standard -adic analysis , we see that any nonzero -adic number can be uniquely represented in the canonical series as follows: where are integers, , and . The series (2) converges in the -adic norm since .
The space consists of points , where , . The -adic norm on is Denote by the ball with center at and radius and by the sphere with center at and radius , . It is clear that , and We set and .
Since is a locally compact commutative group under addition, it follows from the standard analysis that there exists a Haar measure on , which is unique up to positive constant multiple and is translation invariant. We normalize the measure by the equality where denotes the Haar measure of a measurable subset of . By simple calculation, we can obtain that for any . For a more complete introduction to the -adic field, see  or .
The well-known Hardy’s integral inequality  tells us that, for , where the classical Hardy operator is defined by for nonnegative integral function on , and the constant is the best possible. Thus the norm of Hardy operator on is
Faris  introduced the following -dimensional Hardy operator, for nonnegative function on , where is the volume of the unit ball in . Christ and Grafakos  obtained that the norm of on is which is the same as that of the 1-dimensional Hardy operator.
In , Fu et al. obtained the precise norm of -linear Hardy operators on weighted Lebesgue spaces and central Morrey spaces. Fu et al.  introduced -adic Hardy operators and got the sharp estimates of -adic Hardy operators on -adic weighted Lebesgue spaces. Moreover, they proved that the commutators generated by the -adic Hardy operators and the central BMO functions are bounded on -adic weighted Lebesgue spaces and -adic Herz spaces see;  for more information about Herz spaces. Ren and Tao  Yu and Lu  studied the boundedness of commutators of Hardy type on some spaces.
Inspired by these results, in this paper we will establish the sharp estimates of -adic Hardy operators on -adic central Morrey and -central BMO spaces. Furthermore, we will discuss the boundedness for commutators of -adic Hardy operators and -central BMO functions on -adic central Morrey spaces.
Definition 1. For a function on , we define the -adic Hardy operator as follows: where is a ball in with center at and radius .
Morrey  introduced the spaces to study the local behavior of solutions to second-order elliptic partial differential equations. The -adic Morrey space is defined as follows.
Definition 2. Let and let . The -adic Morrey space is defined by where
Remark 3. It is clear that , .
For some recent developments of Morrey spaces and their related function spaces on , we refer the reader to . In 2000, Alvarez et al.  studied the relationship between central BMO spaces and Morrey spaces. Furthermore, they introduced -central bounded mean oscillation spaces and central Morrey spaces, respectively. Next, we introduce their -adic versions.
Definition 4. Let and let . The -adic central Morrey space is defined by where .
Remark 5. It is clear that When , the space reduces to ; therefore, we can only consider the case . If , by Hölder’s inequality, for .
Definition 6. Let and let . The space is defined by the condition where .
Remark 7. When , the space is just , which is defined in . If , by Hölder’s inequality, for . By the standard proof as that in , we can see that
In Section 2, we obtain the sharp estimates of -adic Hardy operators on -adic central Morrey spaces and -adic -central BMO spaces. Analogous result is also established for -adic Morrey spaces. In Section 3, we discuss the boundedness of commutators generated by -adic Hardy operators and -adic -central BMO functions on -adic central Morrey spaces.
We should note that in Euclidean space, when estimating the Hardy operator, one usually discusses its restriction on radical functions. However, on -adic field, we will consider its restriction on the functions with instead.
Throughout this paper the letter will be used to denote various constants, and the various uses of the letter do not, however, denote the same constant.

On the other hand, take . By Remark 8 and (32), for , we have . Then by (33), we get Therefore, We arrive at
As a result, Then Theorem 10 follows from (43) and (47).
Proof of Theorem 12. Let . Then . Using Minkowski’s inequality, we have
On the other hand, as in the proof of Theorem 9, we take , and we only need to show that . Consider the following.
(I) If and , then . Since , we have
(II) If and , then ; therefore, . Recall that two balls in are either disjoint or one is contained in the other (cf. page 21 in ). So we have ; thus, From the previous discussion, we can see that . Then by (33), This completes the proof.
3. Boundedness for Commutators of -Adic Hardy Operators on -Adic Central Morrey Spaces
The boundedness of commutators is an active topic in harmonic analysis due to its important applications. For example, it can be applied to characterizing some function spaces . In this section, we consider the boundedness for commutators generated by and -central BMO functions on -adic central Morrey spaces.

In the following, we will estimate and , respectively. For , since is bounded from to , , then, by Hölder's inequality (), we get
Next, let us estimate as follows:
For , by Hölder’s inequality () and the fact that , , we have For , by Lemma 15 and Hölder’s inequality, we obtain Notice that since , then and .
The above estimates imply that Consequently, Theorem 14 is proved.
