Course Description and Grading Breakdown

This course will cover harmonic analysis and a bit of spectral theory. There will be four parts 1. Classical Fourier series  2. Basic harmonic analysis: (Maximal function, Hilbert transform, BMO, weights)
3. Spectral theorem 4. Littlewood Paley theory and applications. The grades will be determined by 4 problem sets, one on each part. The course will run only nine weeks because graduate students must work on qualifying exams in the tenth.

For computational aids, you may use:


* You may use a computer or calculator while doing the homework, but may not refer to this as justification for your work.  For example, "by Mathematica" is not an acceptable justification for deriving one equation from another.  Also, since computers and calculators will not be allowed on the exams, it's best not to get too dependent on them.
