Let $\Gamma$ be a convex curve in the plane and let $\mu \in M(\mathbb{R}^{2})$ be the arc-length measure of $\Gamma.$ Let us rotate $\Gamma$ by an angle $\theta $ and let $\mu_{\theta }$ be the corresponding measure. Let $T f(x,\theta)=f*\mu _{\theta }(x)$. Then \begin{equation*}\Vert Tf\Vert _{L^{3}(\mathbb{T}\times \mathbb{R}^{2})}\leq c\Vert f\Vert _{L^{3/2}(\mathbb{R}^{2})}. \end{equation*} This is optimal for an arbitrary $\Gamma $. Depending on the curvature of $\Gamma $, this estimate can be improved by introducing mixed-norm estimates of the form \begin{equation*}\left \Vert Tf \right \Vert _{L^{s}\left (\mathbb{T} ,L^{p^{\pr... ...c\left \Vert f\right \Vert _{L^{p}\left (\mathbb{R}^{2}\right)} \end{equation*} where $p$ and $p^{\prime }$ are conjugate exponents.
