I saw the following theorem in the wiki page:

if $f$ satisfies the $\alpha$-Hölder condition $| f(x) - f(y) | \leq C \, |x - y|^{\alpha}$ for some $\alpha>1/2$, then

$||f||_{A} = \sum_i |c_{i}|\leq C c_{\alpha}$

where $c_{\alpha}$ only depends on $\alpha$

But I could not find a reference or a proof for this theorem. Can anybody provide me a ref for this? Thanks a lot!

What is the $A$ norm and what are the $c_i$s? – Willie Wong Dec 6 '10 at 22:43
Have you tried Katznelson's book? – Yemon Choi Dec 7 '10 at 3:20

The proof is outlined in Stein-Shakarchi's book Fourier Analysis, Chapter 3, Exercise 16.
