Harmonic Analysis


Group overview

The faculty of the UBC harmonic analysis group work in a wide range of research areas, including classical harmonic analysis, geometric measure theory, microlocal analysis, and additive combinatorics. The research interests of the group are classical and modern harmonic analysis, particularly Kakeya and restriction theory, maximal operators, and singular and oscillatory integrals, with connections and applications to geometric measure theory, additive combinatorics, complex analysis, and partial differential equations.
