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 Transform: Poisson summation. Heisenberg uncertainty principle

Fourier Transform in several variables. Radon Transform.

Fourier analysis on finite abelian groups. Fast Fourier transform. Characters.

Dirichlet's theorem that there are infinitely many primes in arithmetic progressions.
