#### Abstract

We establish the weighted estimates for the commutators and which are generated by the -dimensional rough Hardy operators and central BMO functions on the weighted Lebesgue spaces, the weighted Herz spaces and the weighted Morrey-Herz spaces. Furthermore, the weighted Lipschitz estimates are also obtained.

#### 1. Introduction

The classical Hardy operator and its adjoint operator are defined, respectively, by Hardy proved the following most celebrated inequality in [1]: Moreover, where . Hardy’s inequality has received considerable attention. In 1995, Christ and Grafakos obtained it on . Firstly, we recall that the definitions of the -dimensional Hardy operator and its adjoint operator given by Christ and Grafakos are as follows: Let , . Then Christ and Grafakos’s results in [2] are where and the constant is the best.

Let be a nonnegative integrable function on . The -dimensional rough Hardy operator and its adjoint operator are defined, respectively, by where , , is homogeneous of degree zero. Then the commutators generated by or and a locally integrable function are defined, respectively, as follows:

In [3], it was proved that the commutators were bounded on the Lebesgue spaces and Herz spaces if . Recently, Gao obtained in [4] that is also bounded from the Morrey-Herz spaces to if . On the other hand, Gao and Wang in [5] had established the weighted estimates on weighted Lebesgue and Herz-type spaces for the commutators and which are generated by -dimensional Hardy operator and and . It is easy to see that and when . A natural question is whether commutators of -dimensional standard rough Hardy operators and also have boundedness on these weighted spaces. The answer is affirmative. The main purpose of this paper is to generalize the above results on the weighted Lebesgue spaces, the weighted Herz spaces, and the weighted Morrey-Herz spaces.

First let us recall some standard definitions and notations before introducing our main results. The classical weighted theory was first introduced by Muckenhoupt in the study of weighted boundedness of the Hardy-Littlewood maximal functions in [6]. A weight is a locally integrable function on which takes values in at almost everywhere. Let denote the ball with the center and radius . is a constant which may vary from line to line. For , let and . We use to denote the characteristic functions of the set . We also denote the weighted measure of by ; that is, . And let be the conjugate index of whenever , .

*Definition 1. * We say that , , if
where is a positive constant which is independent of the choice of .

For the case , , if A weight function if it satisfies the condition for some .

*Definition 2 (see [7]). * Let , , , and and a weighted function. Then the homogeneous weighted Herz space is defined by

Obviously, when , ; when , , .

*Definition 3 (see [8]). *Let , , , , and and a weighted function. Then the homogeneous weighted Morrey-Herz space is defined by
where
with the usual modification made when or .

Obviously, when , ; when , .

*Definition 4 (see [9]). *Let , , and a weighted function. We say that a locally integrable function belongs to the weighted Lipschitz space if
where .

The smallest bound satisfying conditions above is then taken to be the norm of in this space and is denoted by . We also put . Obviously, for the case , the space is the classical Lipschitz space . If , then García-Cuerva in [9] proved that the space coincide for any and the norms of are equivalent with respect to different values of . That is .

*Definition 5 (see [5]). *Let , and a weighted function. A function is said to belong to the weighted central BMO space if
where .

Obviously, . When , .

Now, let us deal with the last term . When , noting inequality (23), by using Lemma 18, Lemma 20, and Remark 17, we have that
When , , by using Lemma 18, inequalities (21) and (23), Remark 17, and an application of Hölder’s inequality give us that
As before, for , using inequalities (32) and (33), we can get
Summing up the above estimates for , , and , it is true that

Consequently,

For the case of , it follows from Hölder’s inequality and that
Therefore, we conclude the proof of Theorem 7(a).

(b) Following the same procedure as that of Theorem 7(a), we can also show the conclusion of (b); the details are omitted here.

*Proof of Theorem 10. *We only give the proof of (a) as . The proof of (b) is similar to that for (a). By using (15) and the above estimates for , , and as those of the proof of Theorem 7, we can obtain that
