Abstract: We consider a large class of positive integral operators acting on functions which are defined on a space of homogeneous type with a group structure. We show that any such operator has a discrete (dyadic) version which is always essentially equivalent in norm to the original operator. As an application, we study conditions of ``testing type,'' like those initially introduced by E. Sawyer in relation to the Hardy-Littlewood maximal function, which determine when a positive integral operator satisfies two-weight weak-type or strong-type $(L^{p}, L^{q})$ estimates. We show that in such a space it is possible to characterize these estimates by testing them only over ``cubes''. We also study some pointwise conditions which are sufficient for strong-type estimates and have applications to solvability of certain nonlinear equations.
