The present paper concerns the Sobolev embedding in the endpoint case. It is known that the embedding fails for . Brézis-Gallouët-Wainger and some other authors quantified why this embedding fails by means of the Hölder-Zygmund norm. In the present paper we will give a complete quantification of their results and clarify the sharp constants for the coefficients of the logarithmic terms in Besov and Triebel-Lizorkin spaces.
