Compactness of Hardy-Type Operators over Star-Shaped Regions in $\mathbb{R}^N$ We study a compactness property of the operators between weighted Lebesgue spaces that average a function over certain domains involving a star-shaped region. The cases covered are (i) when the average is taken over a difference of two dilations of a star-shaped region in $\RR^N$, and (ii) when the average is taken over all dilations of star-shaped regions in $\RR^N$. These cases include, respectively, the average over annuli and the average over balls centered at origin.
