For the Jacobi hypergroup (R+,Δ,), the weak-L1 estimate of the Hardy-Littlewood maximal operator was obtained by W. Bloom and Z. Xu, later by J. Liu, and the endpoint estimate for the Kunze-Stein phenomenon was obtained by J. Liu. In this paper we shall give alternative proofs based on the inverse Abel transform for the Jacobi hypergroup. The point is that the Abel transform reduces the convolution to the Euclidean convolution. More generally, let T be the Hardy-Littlewood maximal operator, the Poisson maximal operator or the Littlewood- Paley g-function for the Jacobi hypergroup, which are defined by using. Then we shall give a standard shape of Tf for f ∈ L1(Δ), from which its weak-L1 estimate follows. Concerning the endpoint estimate of the Kunze-Stein phenomenon, though Liu used the explicit form of the kernel of the convolution, we shall give a proof without using the kernel form.
