#### Abstract

Let be the real unit ball in and . Given a multi-index of nonnegative integers with , we set the quantity where and . In terms of it, we characterize harmonic Bloch and Besov spaces on the real unit ball. This generalizes the main results of Yoneda, 2002, into real harmonic setting.

#### 1. Introduction

Let be the real unit ball in with , where is the normalized volume measure on and is the normalized surface measure on the unit sphere . We denote the class of all harmonic functions on the unit ball by . For , denotes the gradient of . Given a multi-index of nonnegative integers, we use the notations and

For each , the* harmonic **-Bloch space * consists of all functions such that and the* little **-Bloch space * consists of the functions such that The* harmonic Besov space * is the space of all functions in for which where and is the invariant measure on .

Let be a continuous function in . If there exists a constant such that for any , then we say that satisfies* weighted Lipschitz condition*. By means of it, Ren and Kähler [1] obtained the following.

Theorem A. *Let . Then if and only if it satisfies the weighted Lipschitz condition.*

See [3–5] for various characterizations of the Bloch, little Bloch, and Besov spaces in the unit ball of .

The main purpose of this paper is to give some characterizations for the spaces , , and in the real unit ball along Yoneda’s direction. In Section 2, we collect some known results that will be needed in the proof of our results. Our main results and their proofs are presented in Sections 3 and 4.

Throughout this paper, constants are denoted by ; they are positive and may differ from one occurrence to the other. The notation means there is a positive constant such that .

#### 2. Preliminaries

We will be using the same notation in [1, 6]: we write in polar coordinates by and . For any , let Then the symmetry lemma in [7] shows that For any , denote by the Möbius transformation in . It is an involution of such that and , which is of the form By simple computations, we have

For any and , we define the* pseudo-hyperbolic ball* with center and radius as Clearly, .

Lemma 1 (see [1, Lemma 2.1]). *Let and . Then where denotes the volume of .*

The following is a characterization of the space (resp., ) which is proved in [8].

Lemma 2. *Let and be a positive integer. Then (resp., ) if and only if for all multi-index with .*

As an application of Lemma 2, we can obtain the following.

Lemma 3. *Let . Then if and only if for each , *

*Proof. *Fixing a point and letting with , we have for each . By Lemma 2, we see that .

For the converse, we assume that . Let ; then for each It follows from [9] that there exists such that This implies that So the result follows.

Combining Theorem A and Lemma 3, we extend [2, Corollary 2.4] into the real harmonic setting as follows.

Corollary 4. *Let . Then for , if and only if where for all .*

In the following, we give an example which shows that Corollary 4 does not hold for .

#### 3. Results and Discussions

##### 3.1. Harmonic Bloch Spaces

In this section, we give some characterizations of the spaces which can be viewed as the generalizations of Yoneda’s results into the real unit ball of .

For a continuous function in and , we write By using the notation, we characterize as follows.

Theorem 6. *Let , be an integer and . Then if and only if for all multi-index with , where .*

*Proof. *First we prove the sufficiency. Let . Then for each multi-index , . For , it follows from [1] that Fixing and replacing by , we have By Lemma 1, we can deduce that Since is a constant, we see that for any multi-index with . Hence Lemma 2 yields that .

Now we prove the necessity. Let . Then for each multi-index with , we haveBy Lemma 1 we infer that there exists such that and Thus, So the proof is complete.

Theorem 7. *Let , be an integer and . Then if and only iffor all multi-index with , where .*

*Proof. *Sufficiency: assume that (33) holds. Then for any , there exists such that whenever . It follows from an argument similar to that in proof of Theorem 6 that we have whenever . Hence from which we see that .

Necessity: for , let . By Lemma 1 and proof of Theorem 6, we see that, for each multi-index with , for all and . So First letting and then letting , we obtain the desired result.

In the following, by removing the restriction in Theorem 6, we obtain the following.

Theorem 8. *Let , , and . Then if and only if*

*Proof. *We only need to prove the necessity since the proof of sufficiency is similar to that in proof of Theorem 6. Assume that . For , ,which gives where the last integral converges since . Thus

Similarly, we can prove the following.

Theorem 9. *Let , , and . Then if and only if*

##### 3.2. Harmonic Besov Space

In order to prove our next result, we need the following lemma.

Lemma 10. *Let . Then if and only if for all multi-index with .*

*Proof. *This follows from [10, Theorem 3.7] by letting .

Lemma 11. *Let and . Then there exist constants , such that *

*Proof. *By Cauchy’s estimates and Lemma 1, for each , we have for some .

Now, we come to state and prove the result for harmonic Besov spaces.

Theorem 12. *Let , be an integer and . Then if and only if for all multi-index with , where .*

*Proof. *Let . Suppose that SetIt follows from proof of Theorem 6 that we have Since , we see that for all multi-index with . By Lemma 10, .

To prove the necessity, we suppose that . By Lemmas 1 and 11, for each multi-index and , Since by Hölder’s inequality and Fubini’s theorem, we can obtain It follows from Lemma 10 that we see that is bounded. This completes the proof.

#### 4. Conclusions

In this paper, we characterize harmonic Bloch and Besov spaces by using the quantity . Since , our results can be viewed as the generalizations of Yoneda’s results (see [2]) into real harmonic setting. Furthermore, we obtain a characterization of the space in terms of , where .
