Previously, I completed a 4 year BSc in Mathematics and Philosophy with Specialism in Foundations and Logic at the University of Warwick, and then the MASt in Mathematical SciencesLink opens in a new window programme, undertaking a project on Scaling Limits for Random Gaussian Fields supervised by Dr Stefan AdamsLink opens in a new window.
I may be reached at r.[last name A]-[last name B] at warwick.ac.uk.
I am also one of the organisers of the Warwick Junior Analysis and Probability SeminarLink opens in a new window.
In one dimension, there is only one way to truncate a partial sum: count up to a certain N. For eigenfunctions labelled by pairs of indices, as is the case of the Fourier series on Z2, we may truncate in several ways. For example, do we count pairs of indices (n, m) with |n|,|m| ≤ N, or instead count them with n2 + m2 ≤ N? It is a curious fact that Lp convergence can be obtained in the former case (for all p) but "never" the latter: it fails for all p ≠ 2!
After proving new convergence results for triangular domains, I am studying how this convergence might be established in more general regions as they are deformed by homeomorphisms.
