### Abstract

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