is a Hardy-type operator defined on the cone of monotone functions, then weight
characterizations for which the modular inequality
holds, are given for a large class of modular functions .
Specifically, these functions need not both be -functions,
and the class includes the case where
is concave. Our results generalize those in [7,24], where the case
convex, with , -function
was studied. Applications involving the Hardy averaging operator, its dual, the
Hardy-Littlewood maximal function, and the Hilbert transform are also given.
