Course Topics
The course is the study of the basic principles of Fourier analysis. Lectures will drawn from several references (listed below) and will include the following topics:

Fourier series of periodic functions and the Fourier transform on the line: representation of functions, i.e. convergence and divergence (point-wise sense, in the norms of various function spaces, and almost everywhere), convergence of Fejer means and summability; Parseval's relation and the square summable theory; conjugate Fourier series, the conjugate function and the Hilbert transform, the Hardy-Littlewood maximal operator, the Riesz-Thorin and Marcinkiewicz interpolation theorems, function spaces, Riesz' theorem. Additional topics may include Poisson summation formula, unconditional convergence of Fourier series; introduction to Fourier multipliers and wavelets.

Applications will include topics in the theory of partial differential equations and signal processing, in particular the FFT.
