Abstract

This paper is the third of a series in which smoothness properties of function in several variables are discussed. The germ of the whole theory was laid in the works by Folland and Stein [4]. On nilpotent Lie groups, they difined analogues of the classical $L^p$ Sobolev or potential spaces in terms of fractional powers of sub-Laplacian, L and extended several basic theorems from the Euclidean theory of differentaiability to these spaces: interpolation properties, boundedness of singular integrals,..., and imbeding theorems. In this paper we study the analogue to the extension theorem for the Folland-Stein spaces. The analogue to Stein's restriction theorem were studied by M. Mekias [5] and Y.M. Kim [6]. First, we have the space of Bessel potentials on the Heisenberg group introduced by Folland [4].
