#### 1. Introduction

On the real line, the Dunkl operators are differential-difference operators introduced in 1989 by Dunkl [1] and are denoted by , where is a real parameter . These operators are associated with the reflection group on . Rösler in [2] shows that the Dunkl kernel verifies a product formula. This allows us to define the Dunkl translations , .

In the theory of partial differential equations, together with weighted spaces, Morrey spaces play an important role. Morrey spaces were introduced by Morrey in 1938 in connection with certain problems in elliptic partial differential equations and calculus of variations (see [3]). Later, Morrey spaces found important applications to Navier-Stokes [4, 5] and Schrödinger [6–8] equations, elliptic problems with discontinuous coefficients [9, 10], and potential theory [11–13]. An exposition of the Morrey spaces can be found in the book [14].

In the present work, we study some embeddings into the -Morrey and modified -Morrey spaces. As applications we give boundedness of the fractional -maximal operator in the -Morrey and modified -Morrey spaces.

The paper is organized as follows. In Section 2, we present some definitions and auxiliary results. In Section 3, we give some embeddings into the -Morrey and modified -Morrey spaces. In Section 4, we prove the boundedness of the fractional -maximal operator from the spaces to for and from the spaces to for .
