### Invariance under fractional linear transformations

I just read the following result due to Loss-Sloane published in J. Funct. Anal. this year [here]. This is just a lemma in their paper that I found very interesting.

Let $f$ be any function in $C_0^\infty(\mathbb R \setminus \{0\})$. Consider the inversion $x \mapsto \frac{1}{x}$ and set $\displaystyle g(x) = {\left| x \right|^{\alpha - 1}}f\left( {\frac{1}{x}} \right)$.

Then $g \in C_0^\infty(\mathbb R)$ and $\displaystyle\iint\limits_{{\mathbb{R}^2}} {\frac{{{{\left| {g(x) - g(y)} \right|}^2}}}{{{{\left| {x - y} \right|}^{\alpha + 1}}}}dxdy} = \iint\limits_{{\mathbb{R}^2}} {\frac{{{{\left| {f(x) - f(y)} \right|}^2}}}{{{{\left| {x - y} \right|}^{\alpha + 1}}}}dxdy}$.

Proof. For fixed $\varepsilon$ consider the regions $\displaystyle {R_1}: = \left\{ {(x,y) \in {\mathbb{R}^2}:\left| {\frac{x}{y}} \right| > 1 + \varepsilon } \right\}$

and likewise, $\displaystyle {R_2}: = \left\{ {(x,y) \in {\mathbb{R}^2}:\left| {\frac{y}{x}} \right| > 1 + \varepsilon } \right\}$.
