Functions $f \in S(\mathbb{R})$ with slow decay rate?

I came across this question by thinking about whether there are functions $f \in S(\mathbb{R})$ that satisfy for all(!) $a>0$ that $f e^{a|.|^a} \notin L^{\infty},$ as somebody on math....

Is there a $C_c^{\infty}( \mathbb{R}^d)$ function whose Fourier transform we can explicitly write down?

I noticed that although $C_c^{\infty}$-functions are dense in some quite large spaces and well understood (especially their Fourier transform) I have never encountered an explicit example of a ...

Concavity of maxima [closed]

Suppose we have the following optimization problem : $\min\limits_x kf(x) + g(x)$ where $f$ is a decreasing convex function in $x$ and $g$ is an increasing convex function. Can we say that $x^*$ is ...

Conditions for continuity of non-simple eigenvectors

Here, http://math.stackexchange.com/a/1146455, it is noted that eigenprojections are continuous, but eigenvectors are not. Are there any conditions where the eigenvalues are not simple, but the ...

Well-definedness on $C_{0}^{\infty}(\mathbb{R}^{n})$

Let $T$ be a Calderon-Zygmund operator associated to a Calderon-Zygmund kernel $K\in CZK_{\alpha}$ of order $\alpha>0$ and $b\in BMO(\mathbb{R}^{n})$. Then for $f\in C_{0}^{\infty}(\mathbb{R}^{n})$ ...

Uniqueness from orthogonality relation?

This question was posted yesterday on MathOverflow by Michael Smith and received a number of upvotes. I too think the question was interesting. However, for some unknown to me reasons, it has been ...

On the continuity of Riemann-Liouville integral

For a function $f:(0,1)\to\mathbb{R}$, the Riemann-Liouville integral of $f$ is defined by $$(I^{1-\nu}f)(t):=\frac{1}{\Gamma(1-\nu)}\int_{0}^{t}\frac{f(s)}{(t-s)^{\nu}}ds,$$ where $\nu\in(0,1)$ is ...

Integration against Borel measures on compact Hausdorff spaces

I am studying the properties of integration against Borel measures and Baire measures. And I am not sure whether the following proposition is correct and I tried to give a proof. Suppose that $X$ ...

Proof of formula for $\pi$ [closed]

The number $\pi$ can be expressed as $\pi=\lim_{n\to\infty} \frac{n\sqrt[n]{-1}-n}{\sqrt{-1}}$ or more poetically $\pi=\frac{\infty\sqrt[\infty]{-1}-\infty}{\sqrt{-1}}$. Here we choose the principal ...

Density of polynomials in $C^k(\overline\Omega)$

Let $\Omega$ be an open and bounded subset of $\mathbb{R}^2$ and let $C^k(\Omega)$, $1\leq k<\infty$, be the space of functions $f$ with continuous derivatives of order $\leq k$ in $\Omega$, ...

Pointwise convergence of a sequence of approximate limits of BV functions

So, let $\Omega\subset \mathbb R^2$ bounded and consider a sequence of functions $\{u_k\}_{k\in\mathbb N}\subset BV(\Omega)$ and $u\in BV(\Omega)$ such that $u_k\rightarrow u$ weakly* in $BV(\Omega)$. ...

Nonlinear smooth bijection from $\mathbb Q$ to itself [duplicate]

Is there a bijection $\phi: \mathbb Q \to \mathbb Q$ such that $\phi$ is nonlinear: different from $ax+b$, $\phi$ is smooth: the extension $\hat{\phi}$ of $\phi$ over $\mathbb R$ is $\mathcal C^2$ ? ...

On 1-iso maps and subsets of the unit circle

Let $S$ be the unit circle and for any $x,y \in S$ let $d(x,y)$ be the lenght of the smallest arc between $x$ and $y$. A bijective map $\phi : S\longrightarrow S$ is called 1-iso if the following ...

What are the spaces for which the Fourier transform is an automorphism? [closed]

this is well-known that the Fourier transform is an automorphism of $L^2(\mathbb R)$ and also of $\mathcal S(\mathbb R)$ (Schwartz space). Is there any other spaces of functions of one real variable ...
