Let M(ℝn) be the class of bounded away from one and infinity functions p: ℝn → [1,∞] such that the Hardy-Littlewood maximal operator is bounded on the variable Lebesgue space Lp(⋅)(ℝn). We show that if a belongs to the Hörmander class Sn(ρ-1) ρ, δ with 0 < ρ ≤ 1, 0 ≤ δ < 1, then the pseudodifferential operator Op(a) is bounded on Lp(⋅)(ℝn) provided that p∈M(ℝn). Let M* (ℝn) be the class of variable exponents p∈M(ℝn) represented as 1/p(x) = θ/p0 + (1 – θ)/p1(x) where p0 ∈ (1,∞), θ ∈(0, 1), and p1 ∈M(ℝn). We prove that if a ∈ S0 1,0 slowly oscillates at infinity in the first variable, then the condition (Formula presented.) is sufficient for the Fredholmness of Op(a) on Lp(⋅)(ℝn) whenever p∈M* (ℝn). Both theorems generalize pioneering results by Rabinovich and Samko [24] obtained for globally log-Hölder continuous exponents p, constituting a proper subset of M* (ℝn).
