Recently a series of interesting theorems have been proved by Bourgain, Brezis, Mironescu, and Van Schaftingen, [7] , that involve the divergence and curl of vector fields. Among the many results obtained is the following surprising inequality: Theorem A. (Bourgain and Brezis [2]). Suppose Z is a smooth vector field, Z(x) = (Z 1 (x), . . . , Z n (x)), of compact support in R n , with n ≥ 3. If curl Z = f and div Z = 0, then
