It is showed that a class of multilinear fractional operators with rough kernels, which are similar to the higher-order commutators for the rough fractional integrals, are bounded on the weighted Morrey spaces.

Suppose that denotes the unit sphere of equipped with the usual Lebesgue measure, is homogeneous of degree zero, and , , are functions defined on . Consider the following multilinear fractional integral with rough kernel defined bywhere ,  , and

When , , and , then is just the commutator of the rough fractional integral with the function :If , then is nontrivial generalization of the above commutator. The weighted -boundedness of the operator was given by Wu and Yang in [1].

When , for , and , then is the higher-order commutator of the fractional integral with the function :The weighted -boundedness of was given by Ding and Lu in [2].

Ding and Lu in [3] proved the following result.

Here and in the sequel, always denotes the conjugate index of any ; that is, , and stands for a constant which is independent of the main parameters, but it may vary from line to line.

The purpose of this paper is to discuss the boundedness properties of the rough fractional multilinear integral operators on appropriate weighted Morrey spaces.

The classical Morrey spaces were introduced by Morrey [4] in 1938 and have been studied intensively by various authors and together with weighted Lebesgue spaces play an important role in the theory of partial differential equations [57].

In order to deal with the fractional order case, we need to consider the weighted Morrey spaces with two weight functions; they were also introduced by Komori and Shirai in [9].

2. Some Preliminaries

We begin with some properties of weights which play a great role in the proofs of our main results.

Weight is a nonnegative, locally integrable function on . Let denote the ball with the center and radius and let for any . For a given weight function and a measurable set , we also denote the Lebesgue measure of by and set weighted measure . For any given weight function on , , and , denote by the space of all functions satisfying

Weight is said to belong to for , if there exists a constant such that denotes the set consisting of all weight functions :Weight is said to belong to if there are positive numbers and such that for all balls and all measurable . It is well known that

The classical weight theory was first introduced by Muckenhoupt in the study of weighted -boundedness of Hardy-Littlewood maximal function in [14].

Lemma 10 (see [14, 15]). Suppose . The following statements hold: (i)For any , there is a positive number such that(ii)For any , there is a positive number and such that(iii)For any , one has .

We also need another weight class introduced by Muckenhoupt and Wheeden in [16] to study weighted boundedness of fractional integral operators.

Given , we say that if there exists a constant such that, for every ball , the inequalityholds when , and for every ball the inequalityholds when .

By (26), we have

We summarize some properties about weights ; see [15, 16].

Finally, we recall a relationship between essential supremum and essential infimum.

3. A Local Estimate

To prove Theorem 3, we first investigate the following local estimate.

Theorem 17. Let , , let , and let be homogeneous of degree zero with , . Suppose and have derivatives of order in , ; then, for any , there is a constant independent of such that

Proof. To simplify the proof process of Theorem 17 in the following discussion we consider only the case The method can be used to deal with the case without any essential difficulty.
We write as , where , and denotes the characteristic function of . ThenSince , by the boundedness of from to (Theorem 1) we getNoting that and , then by Hölder’s inequality This means Thus Since , by (28), we getholds for all ThenLet , and let Suppose By Lemma 15,By Hölder’s inequalities,When and , then by a direct calculation, we can see that . ThenWe also note that if , then . ConsequentlyThen Since , it follows from Hölder’s inequality that ThenFrom (50) we knowThen By Hölder’s inequality and (54), (55) we haveApplying Hölder’s inequality again, we get Consequently, By and (ii) of Lemma 11 we know Then it follows from (31) and (59) thatHence Similar to the estimates for , we have Finally, we come to estimate .
Similar to (59), we get By Hölder’s inequality we get Then Since , similar to (64), we can deduceThen by (70) we get
