Abstract: It is shown that if we restrict the identity minus Hardy operator on the cone of nonnegative decreasing functions $ f$ in $ L^{p}$, then we have the sharp estimate

$\displaystyle \left\Vert (I-H)f\right\Vert _{L^p}\leq \frac{1}{(p-1)^{\frac{1}{p}}}\left\Vert f\right\Vert _{L^p} $

for $ p=2,3,4,....$ In other words,

$\displaystyle \left\Vert f^{**}-f^* \right\Vert _{L^p}\leq \frac{1}{(p-1)^{\frac{1}{p}}} \left\Vert f\right\Vert _{L^p} $

for each $ f \in L^p$ and each integer $ p\ge2$.

It is also shown, via a connection between the operator $ I-H$ and Laguerre functions, that

$\displaystyle \Vert(1-\alpha) I+\alpha (I-H)\Vert _{L^2\to L^2}=\Vert I-\alpha H\Vert _{L^2\to L^2}=1 $

for all $ \alpha \in [0,1]$.
