Recall that N isthe greatest integer less than orequal to n(— - 1) and integrals without limits are over all of R . Suppose that f does satisfy the necessary cancellation (1.1) . What kind ofsize condition on f will guarantee that f £ H ? One such condition has been found byTaibleson and Weiss [ TW, Theorem 2.9] , who followed uponearlier work byCoifman and Weiss [CW] .

We are going toprove a stronger embedding theorem which canbe regarded asa critical endpointcase of the Taibleson-Weiss theorem. To formulate this theorem, and some others inthis paper, wemust introduce 4
