If is an open interval and an open subset with Lipschitz continuous, we show that the space is continuously embedded in if and . When , this coincides with Morrey's embedding theorem for . While weaker results have been obtained by various methods, including very technical ones, the proof given here follows that of Morrey's theorem in the scalar case and relies only on widely known properties of the classical Sobolev spaces and of the Bochner integral.
This embedding is useful to formulate nonlinear evolution problems as functional equations, but it has other applications. As an example, we derive apparently new space-time Holder continuity properties for when generates a holomorphic semigroup on .
