Instructor: Laura De Carli
Office Hours:  On Zoom, by appointment 



This is a proof-based high level Math class.  
Prerequisites for this class are: Multivariable Calculus and linear algebra with a grade of C or better.
Advanced Calculus or (for graduate students) Real Analysis are strongly recommended
 Course plan:



·       Review of integration and Lp spaces

·       Interpolation in Lp

·       Fourier transform in L1 and L1 ∩ L2. Definition, properties, and basic identities

·       The Fourier transforms of Gaussian functions. Plancherel theorem in L1 ∩ L2

·       Distributions

·       Fourier transform on spaces of distributions and in L2.

·       Plancherel theorem revisited

·       Hilbert and Riesz transform, Fourier multipliers

·       The Fourier transform on the sphere and restriction theorems for the Fourier transform

·       Solving partial differential equations using the Fourier transform

·       (if time allows) The Heisenberg uncertain principle

·       From the Fourier transform to the Fourier series 

·       Topics of interest for the class



Textbook: Lecture  notes on distributions and the Fourier transform (it will be updated weekly)

E-mail is the best way to communicate with me.  When I get an e-mail   I ALWAYS reply  ASAP.  So if you don't get a reply from me it's because I did not get your message or you did not get mine.  Keep in mind that FIU spam filter sometimes blocks e-mail from non-FIU addresses. You should let me know promptly if some miscommunication happens
