Compactness of Commutators for Singular Integrals on Morrey Spaces
In this paper we characterize the
compactness of the commutator $[b,T]$ for the singular integral
operator on the Morrey spaces $L^{p,\lambda}(\mathbb R^n)$. More
precisely, we prove that if
$b\in \operatorname{VMO}(\mathbb R^n)$, the $\operatorname {BMO}
(\mathbb R^n)$closure of $C_c^\infty(\mathbb R^n)$,
then $[b,T]$ is a compact operator on the
Morrey spaces $L^{p,\lambda}(\mathbb R^n)$ for $1\lt p\lt \infty$ and
$0\lt \lambda\lt n$. Conversely, if $b\in \operatorname{BMO}(\mathbb R^n)$ and
$[b,T]$ is a compact operator on the $L^{p,\,\lambda}(\mathbb R^n)$
for some $p\ (1\lt p\lt \infty)$, then $b\in \operatorname {VMO}(\mathbb R^n)$.
Moreover, the boundedness of a rough singular integral operator $T$
and its commutator $[b,T]$ on $L^{p,\,\lambda}(\mathbb R^n)$ are also
given. We obtain a sufficient condition for a
subset in Morrey space to be a strongly precompact set,
which has interest in its own right.
