The purpose of this paper is to establish some Adams–Moser–Trudinger inequalities, which are the borderline cases of the Sobolev embedding, in the hyperbolic space $\mathbb H^n$. First, we prove a sharp Adams’ inequality of order two with the exact growth condition in $\mathbb H^n$. Then we use it to derive a sharp Adams-type inequality and an Adachi–Tanakat-ype inequality. We also prove a sharp Adams-type inequality with Navier boundary condition on any bounded domain of $\mathbb H^n$, which generalizes the result of Tarsi to the setting of hyperbolic spaces. Finally, we establish a Lions-type lemma and an improved Adams-type inequality in the spirit of Lions in $\mathbb H^n$. Our proofs rely on the symmetrization method extended to hyperbolic spaces.

Keywords: Hyperbolic space, sharp Moser–Trudinger inequality, sharp Adams inequality, Lions lemma, exact growth condition
