We study weak type interpolation for ultrasymmetric spaces L?,E i.e., having the norm ??(t)f*(t)?E˜, where ?(t) is any quasiconcave function and E˜ is arbitrary rearrangement-invariant space with respect to the measure dt/t. When spaces L?,E are not “too close” to the endpoint spaces of interpolation (in the sense of Boyd), the optimal interpolation theorem was stated in [13]. The case of “too close” spaces was studied in [15] with results which are optimal, but only among ultrasymmetric spaces. In this paper we find better interpolation results, involving new types of rearrangement-invariant spaces, A?,b,E and B?,b,E, which are described and investigated in detail.
