We continue the study of the space $BV^\alpha(\mathbb R^n)$ of functions with bounded fractional variation in $\mathbb R^n$ and of the distributional fractional Sobolev space $S^{\alpha,p}(\mathbb R^n)$, with $p\in [1,+\infty]$ and $\alpha\in(0,1)$, considered in the previous works blow-up and asymptotics I. We first define the space $BV^0(\mathbb R^n)$ and establish the identifications $BV^0(\mathbb R^n)=H^1(\mathbb R^n)$ and $S^{\alpha,p}(\mathbb R^n)=L^{\alpha,p}(\mathbb R^n)$, where $H^1(\mathbb R^n)$ and $L^{\alpha,p}(\mathbb R^n)$ are the (real) Hardy space and the Bessel potential space, respectively. We then prove that the fractional gradient $\nabla^\alpha$ strongly converges to the Riesz transform as $\alpha\to0^+$ for $H^1\cap W^{\alpha,1}$ and $S^{\alpha,p}$ functions. We also study the convergence of the $L^1$-norm of the $\alpha$-rescaled fractional gradient of $W^{\alpha,1}$ functions. To achieve the strong limiting behavior of $\nabla^\alpha$ as $\alpha\to0^+$, we prove some new fractional interpolation inequalities which are stable with respect to the interpolating parameter.

Keywords: Fractional Gradient, fractional interpolation inequality, Riesz transform, Hardy space, Bessel potential space
