MATH 750

Fourier Analysis  - Fall 2002
Professor Robert Sharpley
Meets: MWF  11:15-12:05 in LeConte College 316

Instructor Information
 Office:   LeConte 313 D
 Office Hours: (TBD)

Course Topics
The course is the study of the basic principles of Fourier analysis and the necessary prerequisites for the analysis of wavelets. 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.

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