Abstract: We discuss spaces of Sobolev type which are defined by the operator with singularity: , where and . This operator appears in a one-dimensional harmonic oscillator governed by Wigner's commutation relations. We study smoothness of and continuity of () where is in each space of Sobolev type, and obtain a generalization of the Sobolev embedding theorem. On the basis of a generalization of the Fourier transform, the proof is carried out. We apply the result to the Cauchy problems for partial differential equations with singular coefficients.
