Harmonic Analysis

Semester February - July 2019



Monday - Tuesday 4:00 - 6:00 pm

Problem Session

Friday 4:00 - 5:00 pm

Office Hour

Wednesday 4:00 - 5:00 pm


This is an introductory Harmonic Analysis course, from the properties of harmonic functions and the solution to the Dirichlet problems in the ball and the upper half space, to the study of their boundary limits. We will discuss the varying techniques to solve these problems, as Fourier series and Calderón-Zygmund integrals. We will also introduce the theory of Harmonic Analysis on fractals.

Midterm evaluations

There will be two midterm evaluations, which will consist of assigned problems and a written essay.

Assigned problems 50%

Problems will be assigned on Monday every week, and are due by Friday. The problems are exercises that either will fill details of results discussed in class, or ar applications of such results to other problems.

Written essay 50%

The written essay will be a report, due by the dates below, on a short research project. The project may be worked by a student alone or in pairs. Projects will be assigned by the fifth week of each midterm. Assigned projects will be different.


  • First essay due on March 29
  • Second essay due on June 7

Final evaluation

The final examination will consist of a public presentation of an specific topic (50%) and an oral examination (50%).
