An embedding norm and the Lindqvist trigonometric functions

Christer Bennewitz & Yoshimi Saito

We shall calculate the operator norm $\|T\|_p$ of the Hardy operator
$Tf = \int_0^x f $, where $1\le p\le \infty$.
This operator is related to the Sobolev embedding operator from $W^{1,p}(0,1)/\mathbb{C}$ into $W^p(0,1)/\mathbb{C}$. For $1<p<\infty$, the extremal, whose norm gives the operator norm $\|T\|_p$, is expressed in terms of the function $\sin_p$ which is a generalization of the usual sine function and was introduced by Lindqvist [6].
