2013 (English)In: Annales Academiae Scientiarum Fennicae Mathematica, ISSN 1239-629X, E-ISSN 1798-2383, Vol. 38, no 1, 771-783 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A set E in a space X is called a polar set in X, relative to a kernel k(x; y), if thereis a nonnegative measure in X such that the potential Uk(x) = ∞ precisely when x ∈ E. Polarsets have been characterized in various classical cases as G-sets (countable intersections of opensets) with capacity zero. We characterize polar sets in a homogeneous space (X; d; ) for severalclasses of kernels k(x; y), among them the Riesz -kernels and logarithmic Riesz kernels. The latercase seems to be new even in Rn.
