Content: The module builds upon modules from the second and third year like MA222 Metric Spaces, MA359 Measure Theory and MA3G7 Functional Analysis I to present the fundamental tools in Harmonic Analysis and some applications, primarily in Partial Differential Equations. Some of the main aims include:
- Setting up a rigorous calculus of rough objects, such as distributions.
- Studying the boundedness of singular integrals and their applications.
- Understanding the scaling properties of inequalities.
- Defining Sobolev spaces using the Fourier Transform and the connections between the decay of the Fourier Transform and the regularity of functions.
- Distributions on Euclidean space.
- Tempered distributions and Fourier transforms.
- Singular integral operators and Calderon-Zygmund theory.
- Theory of Fourier multipliers.
- Littlewood-Paley theory.
