It is impossible in limited number of pages to give a fair picture of such a remarkable man, great mathematician and human being as Josip Pecaric. Our intention is instead to complement the picture of him in various ways. We hope that our paper will give also someflavor of Josip as family man, fighter, supervisor,international authority, author (also in other subjects than mathematics), fan of the Croatian football team, and not only as his obvious role as our King of Inequalities.

Infinitely many, even scales of, equivalent conditions are derived to characterize the bilinear Hardy-type inequality under various ranges of parameters.

We characterize boundedness of a convolution operator with a fixed kernel between the weighted Lorentz spaces Lambda(p)(v) and Gamma(q)(w) for 0 < p <= q <= infinity, 1 <= q < p < infinity and 0 < q <= p = infinity. We provide corresponding weighted Young-type inequalities and also study basic properties of some new involved r.i. spaces.

This paper is concerned with the study of two functionals of variational type - the Riesz type generalized variation v_{p,\alpha}(f) (1<p<\infty, 0\le\alpha\le1-1/p) and the moduli of p-continuity \omega_{1-1/p}(f;d). These functionals generate scales of spaces connecting the class of functions of bounded p-variation and the Sobolev space W_p^1. Some limiting relations in these scales are proved. Sharp estimates of v_{p,\alpha}(f) in terms of \omega_{1-1/p}(f;d) are obtained.
