we revisit the Lorentz spaces 𝐿 ( 𝑝 , 𝑞 ) for 𝑝 > 1 , 𝑞 > 0 defined by G. G. Lorentz in the nineteen fifties and we show how the atomic decomposition of the spaces 𝐿 ( 𝑝 , 1 ) obtained by De Souza in 2010 can be used to characterize the multiplication and composition operators on these spaces. These characterizations, though obtained from a completely different perspective, confirm the various results obtained by S. C. Arora, G. Datt and S. Verma in different variants of the Lorentz Spaces.
