Math 523: Continuous and Dyadic Harmonic Analysis
Fall 2016

General Course Information

Professor: Brett D. Wick Class Meeting Time: MWF 10:00am - 11:00am

Lecture Location: Cupples I, Room 199

Course Content: Math 523 will serve as an introduction to harmonic analysis in the continuous and dyadic settings. Topics covered will include theory of Calderon-Zygmund operators, Littlewood-Paley Theory and the applications of these topics to the study of function spaces.

Prerequisites for the course are Math 5051 and 5052, or permission of instructor.

The syllabus for the course will be discussed the first day of class and then will be available here.

Textbook: There will be no required textbook for the course. Part of the material to be covered can be found in Classical and Modern Harmonic Analysis by Grafakos, Harmonic Analysis: Real Variable Methods, and Oscillatory Integrals by Stein, or Fourier Analysis by Duoandikoetxea.

Attendance: Attendance is required for all lectures. The student who misses a class meeting is responsible for any assignments and/or announcements made. Office hours will not be utilized to re-teach material presented in class. There will be no opportunities for make-up tests after the fact. In the event of an absence due to travel representing WUSTL, such as an intercollegiate sports competition, you must notify the professor at least two weeks in advance to arrange an early test or other alternative. Otherwise, such absences will be treated as personal.

Homework: This course will have daily homework assignments which should be done before the next class. Homework will not be colleceted and graded.

Projects: There will be a required project to complete for the course. The project will be to work through a particular paper and present it to the class. The project will be determined by discussion between the student and the instructor and selected based on connections with the course and students interests. Exact details will be provided later.

Grade Computation Computation of your course grade is explained in detail on the syllabus. The usual ten-point scale will be used (A: 90-100, B: 80-89, C: 70-79, D: 60-69, F: 0-59), however, if necessary, adjustments will be made to arrive at a standard grade distribution for the course. On an individual basis, significant improvement over the semester will be taken into account. For students taking the course with the Pass/Fail option, the threshold for a passing grade will be a "C".

Learning Disabilities: It is the right of any student with a certified learning disability to request necessary accommodation. Such requests must be made well in advance of the time that the accommodation is required and a letter of documentation from the CornerStone office must be presented at the time of any request.

Academic Honesty: It is expected that all students are aware of their individual responsibilities under the WUSTL Academic Integrity Policy, which will be strictly adhered to in this class.
