    Question on meaning of some symbols.

    I don't know the meaning of these:

    1) sup_{B_\delta}|f(x,y)|

    Where B_\delta is the ball of radius \delta.


    2) \int \int _{R^2 \B_{\delta}} f(xy)dxdy

    I don't know what is R^2 \B_{\delta}

    Please read my Latex because the symbol really don't show correctly.

    I believe the first symbol refers to an upper bound for the function and the second symbol refers to two-dimensional space.

    Your latex is ok

    Anyway, given that you know the center of the balls you're considering, the first would mean that we take the supremum of |f(x,y)| for x in B_\delta (if y is fixed), or conversely. But this one is not very clear...

    The second one means that you integrate in the area B_\delta^2=B_\delta\times B_\delta, that is to say for x\in B_\delta and y\in B_\delta
