It is proven that if in a bounded domain and if for some , then given , the Hardy-Littlewood maximal function of , , is such that . Because , the thesis is slightly weaker than for some . The assumption that for some is proven to be optimal in the framework of the Orlicz spaces to obtain in the same class of spaces.
