Title: Fourier uncertainty principles, interpolation and uniqueness sets
 +
 +
Abstract: A classical result in the theory of entire functions of exponential type, Shannon’s interpolation formula predicates that, given a function whose Fourier transform vanishes outside the interval $[-1/2,1/2]$, it is possible to recover it from its values at the integers. More specifically, it holds, in a suitable sense of convergence, that
 +
 +
$$ f(x) = \sum_{n \in \mathbb{Z}} f(n) \frac{\sin(\pi(x-n))}{\pi(x -n)}. $$
 +
 +
This formula is unfortunately unavailable for arbitrary Schwartz functions on the real line, but a recent result of Radchenko and Viazovska provides us with an explicit construction of an interpolation basis for even Schwartz functions. It states, in a nutshell, that we can recover explicitly the function given its values at the squares of roots of integers.
 +
 +
We will discuss a bit these two results, and explore, in connection to classical Fourier uncertainty results, the question of determining which pairs of sets $(A,B)$ satisfy that, if a Schwartz function $f$ vanishes on A and its Fourier transform vanishes on B, then $f \equiv 0.$
 +
 +
In particular, we will give sufficient conditions on $(\alpha,\beta)$ pairs of positive numbers so that, if $f$ vanishes at $\pm n^{\alpha}$ and its Fourier transform vanishes at $\pm n^{\beta}$, then $f$ is identically zero.

Title:  An Estimate for Spherical Functions on $\mathrm{SL}(3,\mathbb{R})$
  
 +
Abstract:  We prove an estimate for spherical functions $\phi_\lambda(a)$ on $\mathrm{SL}(3,\mathbb{R})$, establishing uniform decay in the spectral parameter $\lambda$ when the group parameter $a$ is restricted to a compact subset of the abelian subgroup $\mathrm{A}$. In the case of $\mathrm{SL}(3,\mathbb{R})$, it improves a result by J.J. Duistermaat, J.A.C. Kolk and V.S. Varadarajan by removing the limitation that $a$ should remain regular. As in their work, we estimate the oscillatory integral that appears in the integral formula for spherical functions by the method of stationary phase. However, the major difference is that we investigate the stability of the singularities arising from the linearized phase function by classifying their local normal forms when the parameters $\lambda$ and $a$ vary.

Abstract:  The arithmetic progression problems were posed by Erd\”os-Turan, answered affirmatively by Semer\’edi. However, there are still many questions remained on precise quantitative description on how large a subset shall be in oredr to guarantee a progression in it. Involving with Fourier analysis, considerable work had been accomplished recently. We will give a survey on those progress, and report our recent progress on quantitative version of Roth’s type theorem on (polynomial) progressions of short length.

Although convolution on Euclidean space and the Heisenberg group satisfy the same $L^p$ bounds with the same optimal constants, the former has maximizers while the latter does not. However, as work of Christ has shown, it is still possible to characterize near-maximizers. Specifically, any near-maximizing triple of the trilinear form for convolution on the Heisenberg group must be close to a particular type of triple of ordered Gaussians after adjusting by symmetry. In this talk, we will use the expansion method to prove a quantitative version of this characterization.

The first is a sharp $L^2$ estimate for the maximal averaging operator associated to sets of directions from algebraic sets in R^n of arbitrary codimension. The proof uses a new scheme of polynomial partitioning on manifolds which extends ideas by Larry Guth. The second result is a sharp estimate in all dimensions for the maximal directional singular integrals along lacunary directions. This settles a question of Parcet and Rogers. The proof uses a combination of two-dimensional and $n$-dimensional coverings combining seemingly contrasting ideas  of Parcet-Rogers and of  Nagel-Stein-Wainger.

Title: On the regularity of maximal operators on Sobolev Spaces

Abstract: In this talk, we will discuss the regularity properties (boundedness and continuity) of the classical and fractional maximal operators when these act on the Sobolev space W^{1,p}(\R^n). We will focus on the endpoint case p=1. We will talk about some recent results and current open problems.

Yakun Xi

Title: Distance sets on Riemannian surfaces and microlocal decoupling inequalities

Abstract: In this talk, we discuss the generalization of the Falconer distance problem to the Riemannian setting. In particular, we extend the recent result of Guth-Iosevich-Ou-Wang for the distance set in the plane to general Riemannian surfaces. The key new ingredient is a family of refined decoupling inequalities associated with phase functions that satisfy Carleson-Sj\”olin condition. This is joint work with Iosevich and Liu.

Joris Roos

Title: L^p improving estimates for maximal spherical averages

Abstract: For a given compact set of radii $E$ we will discuss $L^p$ improving properties of maximal spherical averages with a supremum over $E$. Our results are sharp up to endpoints for a large class of $E$. A new feature is that the optimal exponents depend on both, the upper Minkowski dimension and the Assouad dimension of the set $E$. Joint work with Tess Anderson, Kevin Hughes and Andreas Seeger.

Abstract: A classical result in the theory of entire functions of exponential type, Shannon’s interpolation formula predicates that, given a function whose Fourier transform vanishes outside the interval $[-1/2,1/2]$, it is possible to recover it from its values at the integers. More specifically, it holds, in a suitable sense of convergence, that

$$ f(x) = \sum_{n \in \mathbb{Z}} f(n) \frac{\sin(\pi(x-n))}{\pi(x -n)}. $$

This formula is unfortunately unavailable for arbitrary Schwartz functions on the real line, but a recent result of Radchenko and Viazovska provides us with an explicit construction of an interpolation basis for even Schwartz functions. It states, in a nutshell, that we can recover explicitly the function given its values at the squares of roots of integers.

We will discuss a bit these two results, and explore, in connection to classical Fourier uncertainty results, the question of determining which pairs of sets $(A,B)$ satisfy that, if a Schwartz function $f$ vanishes on A and its Fourier transform vanishes on B, then $f \equiv 0.$

In particular, we will give sufficient conditions on $(\alpha,\beta)$ pairs of positive numbers so that, if $f$ vanishes at $\pm n^{\alpha}$ and its Fourier transform vanishes at $\pm n^{\beta}$, then $f$ is identically zero.

Involving with Fourier analysis, considerable work had been accomplished recently.

Jeff Galkowski

Concentration and Growth of Laplace Eigenfunctions

In this talk we will discuss a new approach to understanding eigenfunction concentration. We characterize the features that cause an eigenfunction to saturate the standard supremum bounds in terms of the distribution of L^2 mass along geodesic tubes emanating from a point. We also show that the phenomena behind extreme supremum norm growth is identical to that underlying extreme growth of eigenfunctions when averaged along submanifolds. Finally, we use these ideas to understand a variety of measures of concentration; in each case obtaining quantitative improvements over the known bounds.

David Beltran

Title: Regularity of the centered fractional maximal function

Abstract: I will report some recent progress regarding the boundedness of the map $f \mapsto |\nabla M_\beta f|$ from the endpoint space $W^{1,1}(\mathbb{R}^d)$ to $L^{d/(d-\beta)}(\mathbb{R}^d)$, where $M_\beta$ denotes the fractional version of the centered Hardy--Littlewood maximal function. A key step in our analysis is a relation between the centered and non-centered fractional maximal functions at the derivative level, which allows to exploit the known techniques in the non-centered case.

This is joint work with José Madrid.

Dominique Kemp

Decoupling for Real Analytic Surfaces Exhibiting Zero Curvature

The celebrated l^2 decoupling theorem of Jean Bourgain and Ciprian Demeter presented a new perspective on a range of problems related to hypersurfaces with nonzero Gaussian curvature, such as exponential sum estimates, additive energy estimates, local smoothing, and counting solutions to Diophantine inequalities. The same authors also extended their theory to the n-dimensional cone. Following their steps, we prove optimal l^2 decoupling results for the remaining class of zero-curvature two-dimensional surfaces without umbilical points (the so-called tangent surfaces). We are also able to prove a decoupling theorem for the real analytic surfaces of revolution. These results should be viewed as partial progress toward the goal of proving a decoupling theorem for arbitrary real analytic hypersurfaces.


Kevin O'Neill

A Quantitative Stability Theorem for Convolution on the Heisenberg Group

Although convolution on Euclidean space and the Heisenberg group satisfy the same $L^p$ bounds with the same optimal constants, the former has maximizers while the latter does not. However, as work of Christ has shown, it is still possible to characterize near-maximizers. Specifically, any near-maximizing triple of the trilinear form for convolution on the Heisenberg group must be close to a particular type of triple of ordered Gaussians after adjusting by symmetry. In this talk, we will use the expansion method to prove a quantitative version of this characterization.


Francesco di Plinio

Maximal directional integrals along algebraic and lacunary sets

I will discuss two recent results obtained in collaboration with (partly) Natalia Accomazzo and Ioannis Parissis (U Basque Country). The first is a sharp $L^2$ estimate for the maximal averaging operator associated to sets of directions from algebraic sets in R^n of arbitrary codimension. The proof uses a new scheme of polynomial partitioning on manifolds which extends ideas by Larry Guth. The second result is a sharp estimate in all dimensions for the maximal directional singular integrals along lacunary directions. This settles a question of Parcet and Rogers. The proof uses a combination of two-dimensional and $n$-dimensional coverings combining seemingly contrasting ideas of Parcet-Rogers and of Nagel-Stein-Wainger.




Laurent Stolovitch

Linearization of neighborhoods of embeddings of complex compact manifolds

We shall present the case where the other neighborhood is the neighborhood of the zero section of the normal bundle of C in M. The solution to this problem involves "small divisors problems". This is joint work with X. Gong.


Bingyang Hu

Sparse bounds of singular Radon transforms

In this talk, we will first briefly talk about the general theory of sparse domination, and then talk about the sparse bounds of singular Radon transforms, which strengths the $L^p$ boundedness of such operators due to Christ, Nagel, Stein and Wainger in 1999.
