# Are there nonconstant Hoelder type function?

It is known that nonconstant Hoelder functions $f:R \rightarrow R$ with power $>1$ non exist.

Are there functions $f: R\rightarrow R$ satisfying $$|f(x)-f(y)| \leq C|x-y|^p +D$$ for all $x,y \in R$, where $C,D>0$, $p>1$?

Obviously any bounded function will suffice. Are you looking for an unbounded example? –  Alex Becker Aug 1 '12 at 19:55
Thanks. Yes, If there are. –  Alex Aug 1 '12 at 19:58

Any Lipschitz continuous (Hölder continuous with power $1$) function will do. Suppose $f:\mathbb R\to\mathbb R$ is such that $|f(x)-f(y)|\leq C|x-y|$ for all $x,y\in\mathbb R$. Then for any $p>1$ we have $$|f(x)-f(y)|\leq C(|x-y|^p+1)=C|x-y|^p+C$$ for any $x,y\in\mathbb R$, since if $|x-y|\leq 1$ then clearly $|x-y|< |x-y|^p+1$ while otherwise $|x-y|<|x-y|^p$.
