Abstract

In a smooth domain a function can be estimated pointwise by the classical Riesz potential of its gradient. Combining this estimate with the boundedness of the classical Riesz potential yields the optimal Sobolev-Poincar, inequality. We show that this method gives a Sobolev-Poincar, inequality also for irregular domains whenever we use the modified Riesz potential which arise naturally from the geometry of the domain. The exponent of the Sobolev-Poincar, inequality depends on the domain. The Sobolev-Poincar, inequality given by this approach is not sharp for irregular domains, although the embedding for the modified Riesz potential is optimal. In order to obtain the results we prove a new pointwise estimate for the Hardy-Littlewood maximal operator.
