Description: Harmonic Analysis is one of the most successful and beautiful areas of mathematics. From its origins in Fourier series, it has expanded in various ways - singular integral operators, complex analysis, group representation theory, operator theory.
Fourier Series: Origins. Convergence of Cesaro means. Mean-square convergence.
Pointwise convergence (for smooth classes). Failure of pointwise convergence.
Weyl's equidistribution theorem.
Fourier Transform: Definition, inversion, Plancherel formula.
