Course MAT520

Functional Analysis

The course is intended as a basic introductory course to the modern methods of Analysis. Specific applications of these methods to problems in other fields, such as Partial Differential Equations, Probability, and Number Theory, will also be presented. Topics will include Lp spaces, tempered distributions and the Fourier transform, the Riesz interpolation theorem, the Hardy–Littlewood maximal function, Calderon–Zygmund theory, the spaces H1 and BMO, oscillatory integrals, almost orthogonality, restriction theorems and applications to dispersive equations, the law of large numbers and ergodic theory.  We will also discuss applications of Fourier methods to discrete counting problems, using the Poisson summation formula.
