Title: Dirac inner functions
  
===  Fabio Pusateri (Princeton) ===
+
Abstract: My talk will focus on some new (and old) complex analytic objects arising from Dirac systems of differential equations.
''The Water Waves problem''
+
We will discuss connections between problems in complex function theory, spectral and scattering problems for differential
 +
operators and the non-linear Fourier transform.
  
We will begin by introducing the free boundary Euler equations which are a system of nonlinear PDEs modeling the motion of fluids, such as waves on the surface of the ocean. We will discuss several works done on this system in recent years, and how they fit into the broader context of the study of nonlinear evolution problems. We will then focus on the question of global regularity for water waves, present some of our main results - obtained in collaboration with Ionescu and Deng-Ionescu-Pausader - and sketch some of the main ideas.

''Restricting the Fourier transform to some oscillating curves''
 
  
I will talk about Fourier restriction to some compact smooth curves. The problem is relatively well understood for curves with nonvanishing torsion due to work of Drury from the 80's, but is less so for curves that contain 'flat' points (i.e. vanishing torsion). Sharp results are known for some monomial-like or finite type curves by work of Bak-Oberlin-Seeger, Dendrinos-Mueller, and Stovall, where a geometric inequality (among others) plays an important role. Such an inequality fails to hold if the torsion demonstrates strong sign-changing behavior, in which case endpoint restriction bounds may fail. In this talk I will present how one could obtain sharp non-endpoint results for certain space curves of this kind. Our approach uses a covering lemma for smooth functions that strengthens a variation bound of Sjolin, who used it to obtain a similar result for plane curves. This is joint work with Dashan Fan and Lifeng Wang.
+
Title:  Complex analytic problems on domains with good intrinsic geometry
 +
 
 +
Abstract: In this talk, I will describe a new class of domains in complex Euclidean space which is defined in terms of the existence of a Kaehler metric with good geometric properties. This class is invariant under biholomorphism and includes many well-studied classes of domains such as strongly pseudoconvex domains, finite type domains in dimension two, convex domains, homogeneous domains, and embeddings of Teichmuller spaces. Further, certain analytic problems are tractable for domains in this family even when the boundary is non-smooth. In particular, it is possible to characterize the domains in this family where the dbar-Neumann operator on (0, q)-forms is compact (which generalizes an old result of Fu-Straube for convex domains).

Title: Improved decoupling for the parabola
 +
 
 +
Abstract: In 2014, Bourgain and Demeter proved the  $l^2$ decoupling estimates for the paraboloid with constant $R^{\epsilon}$. 
 +
We prove an $(l^2, L^6)$ decoupling inequality for the parabola with constant $(\log R)^c$.   This is joint work with Larry Guth and Dominique Maldague.
 +
 
 +
===Kevin Luli===
 +
 
 +
Title: Smooth Nonnegative Interpolation
 +
 
 +
Abstract: Suppose E is an arbitrary subset of R^n. Let f: E  \rightarrow [0, \infty). How can we decide if f extends to a nonnegative function C^m function F defined on all of R^n? Suppose E is finite. Can we compute a nonnegative C^m function F on R^n that agrees with f on E with the least possible C^m norm? How many computer operations does this take? In this talk, I will explain recent results on these problems. Non-negativity is one of the most important shape preserving properties for interpolants. In real life applications, the range of the interpolant is imposed by nature. For example, probability density, the amount of snow, rain, humidity, chemical concentration are all nonnegative quantities and are of interest in natural sciences. Even in one dimension, the existing techniques can only handle nonnegative interpolation under special assumptions on the data set. Our results work without any assumptions on the data sets.
 +
 
 +
===Niclas Technau===
 +
 
 +
Title: Number theoretic applications of oscillatory integrals
 +
 
 +
Abstract: We discuss how the analysis of oscillatory integrals can be used to solve number theoretic problems. More specifically, the focus will be on understanding fine-scale statistics of sequences on the unit circle. Further, we shall briefly explain a connection to quantum chaos.
 +
 
 +
===Terence Harris===
 +
 
 +
Title: Low dimensional pinned distance sets via spherical averages
 +
 
 +
Abstract: An inequality is derived for the average t-energy of weighted pinned distance measures, where 0 < t < 1, in terms of the L^2 spherical averages of Fourier transforms of measures. This generalises the result of Liu (originally for Lebesgue measure) to pinned distance sets of dimension smaller than 1, and strengthens Mattila's result from 1987, originally for the full distance set.
 +
 
 +
===Yuval Wigderson===
 +
 
 +
Title: New perspectives on the uncertainty principle
 +
 
 +
Abstract: The phrase ``uncertainty principle'' refers to a wide array of results in several disparate fields of mathematics, all of which capture the notion that a function and its Fourier transform cannot both be ``very localized''. The measure of localization varies from one uncertainty principle to the next, and well-studied notions include the variance (and higher moments), the entropy, the support-size, and the rate of decay at infinity. Similarly, the proofs of the various uncertainty principles rely on a range of tools, from the elementary to the very deep. In this talk, I'll describe how many of the uncertainty principles all follow from a single, simple result, whose proof uses only a basic property of the Fourier transform: that it and its inverse are bounded as operators $L^1 \to L^\infty$. Using this result, one can also prove new variants of the uncertainty principle, which apply to new measures of localization and to operators other than the Fourier transform. This is joint work with Avi Wigderson.

Polona Durcik and Joris Roos

Title: A triangular Hilbert transform with curvature, I & II.

Abstract: The triangular Hilbert is a two-dimensional bilinear singular originating in time-frequency analysis. No Lp bounds are currently known for this operator. In these two talks we discuss a recent joint work with Michael Christ on a variant of the triangular Hilbert transform involving curvature. This object is closely related to the bilinear Hilbert transform with curvature and a maximally modulated singular integral of Stein-Wainger type. As an application we also discuss a quantitative nonlinear Roth type theorem on patterns in the Euclidean plane. The second talk will focus on the proof of a key ingredient, a certain regularity estimate for a local operator.
