Hi,

in which sobolev spaces , , are the functions

a) with

b) with ?

So, do I have to find out in which spaces the functions above has a first weak derivative?

And if yes: How can I find it out?

Thanks in advance,

Alexander

If the function is differentiable in the usual sense, then it's also weakly differentiable and these two derivatives are the same.

Yes, so as

**girdav**noted, you have to check for which do the derivatives lie in .

For the first one, notice that so that iff . Now so for all , and (this is easy to see: change and bound below by a harmonic series). So that iff .

The second one is easier: and so that doesn't belong to any Sobolev space for . - December 3rd 2011, 01:07 PMAlexanderWRe: Sobolev spaces, weak derivative
Thank you very much for your helpful answers!
