Best constants and Pohozaev identity for hardy-sobolev-type operators
This paper is threefold. Firstly, we reformulate the definition of the norm induced by the Hardy inequality (see [J. L. Vázquez and N. B. Zographopoulos, Functional aspects of the Hardy inequality. Appearance of a hidden energy, preprint (2011); http://arxiv. org/abs/1102.5661]) to more general elliptic and sub-elliptic Hardy-Sobolev-type operators. Secondly, we derive optimal inequalities (see [C. Cowan, Optimal inequalities for general elliptic operator with improvement, Commun. Pure Appl. Anal. 9(1) (2010) 109-140; N. Ghoussoub and A. Moradifam, Bessel pairs and optimal Hardy and Hardy-Rellich inequalities, Math. Ann. 349(1) (2010) 1-57 (electronic)]) for multiparticle systems in RN and Heisenberg group. In particular, we provide a direct proof of an optimal inequality with multipolar singularities shown in [R. Bossi, J. Dolbeault and M. J. Esteban, Estimates for the optimal constants in multipolar Hardy inequalities for Schrödinger and Dirac operators, Commun. Pure Appl. Anal. 7(3) (2008) 533-562]. Finally, we prove an approximation lemma which allows to show that the domain of the Dirichlet-Laplace operator is dense in the domain of the corresponding Hardy operators. As a consequence, in some particular cases, we justify the Pohozaev-type identity for such operators.
