401-4463-62L | Fourier Analysis in Function Space Theory | W | 4 credits | 2V | T. Rivière | |

Content | During the first lectures we will review the theory of tempered distributions and their Fourier transforms. We will go in particular through the notion of Fréchet spaces, Banach-Steinhaus for Fréchet spaces etc. We will then apply this theory to the Fourier characterization of Hilbert-Sobolev spaces. In the second part of the course we will study fundamental properties of the Hardy-Littlewood Maximal Function in relation with L^p spaces. We will then make a digression through the notion of Marcinkiewicz weak L^p spaces and Lorentz spaces. At this occasion we shall give in particular a proof of Aoki-Rolewicz theorem on the metrisability of quasi-normed spaces. We will introduce the preduals to the weak L^p spaces, the Lorentz L^{p',1} spaces as well as the general L^{p,q} spaces and show some applications of these dualities such as the improved Sobolev embeddings. In the third part of the course, the most important one, we will present the notion of Singular Integrals and Calderón-Zygmund theory as well as its application to the analysis of linear elliptic operators. This theory will naturally bring us, via the so called Littlewood-Paley decomposition, to the Fourier characterization of classical Hilbert and non Hilbert Function spaces which is one of the main goals of this course. If time permits we shall present the notion of Paraproduct, Paracompositions and the use of Littlewood-Paley decomposition for estimating products and general non-linearities. We also hope to cover fundamental notions from integrability by compensation theory such as Coifman-Rochberg-Weiss commutator estimates and some of its applications to the analysis of PDE. | |||||
