Singular Integrals

Singular Integrals

Date

Starting day: October 7, 2019.
Last day: January 23, 2020.
 
Schedule: Monday 11 h. to 13 h. and Thursday 11 h. to 13 h. (there may be some flexibility in case of incompatibilities).

Location 

Lecturers: Xavier Tolsa, ICREA-UAB (theory), Yorgos Sakellaris, UAB (problem sessions)
 
Course Description:
This is a basic and rather standard course on singular integrals  -a topic  of central importance in the areas of analysis and PDE’s. The course might be useful specially for analysts and PDE people, and also for probabilists.
