 Let \(v\) be a smooth vector field on the plane, that is a map from the plane to the unit circle. The authors study sufficient conditions for the boundedness of the Hilbert transform \[\mathrm{H}_{v, \epsilon }f(x) := \text{p.v.}\int_{\epsilon}^{\epsilon} f(xyv(x))\;\frac{dy}y\] where \(\epsilon\) is a suitably chosen parameter, determined by the smoothness properties of the vector field.
