### Almost periodicity of Bessel functions

We know that a periodic function (e.g. a trigonometric function) has the property
$$
f(x+n\Lambda)=f(x) \qquad n\in\mathbb Z
$$
A Bessel function is not exactly periodic, because the value of the ...

### Long time average of solution to ODE with almost periodic structure

I encountered the following question in my studies: Let $f:\mathbb{R} \rightarrow \mathbb{R}$ be a Bohr almost periodic function such that $\inf_{\mathbb{R}} f = 0$ but $f(x) > 0$ for all $x\in \...

### Can we characterize a periodic function by the compactness of the set of its translates?

Given a function $f$, let us define the translates $f_t(x)=f(x-t)$. A (Bochner) almost-periodic function is a bounded continuous function on $\mathbb R^\nu$ such that the set of functions $\{f_t\vert ...

### About understanding manifold structure on WAP compactification of $\Bbb{C} \rtimes \Bbb{T}$

Let $G$ be a locally compact topological group. A continuous bounded function $f$ on $G$ is called (weakly) almost periodic if the set $L_Gf$ of left translates is relatively compact in the (weak) ...

### Do maximally almost periodic groups embed homeomorphically into their Bohr compactifications? [duplicate]

If $G$ is a Hausdorff topological group and $bG$ is its Bohr compactification, Wikipedia says that $G$ is called maximally almost periodic (MAP) if and only if the natural map $i : G \to bG$ is ...

### Bohr compactification as a topological compactification

Let $G$ be a locally compact Hausdorff group. Denote its Bohr compactification by $bG$.
Despite group structure, $G$ has several (Hausdorff) compactifications that, in a sense, the smallest one is ...

### Approximation of quasi-periodic function by trigonometric polynomials

The elements of the closure of $\{ \sum_{j=1}^n a_j e^{i\nu_j x}: a_j\in \mathbb{C}, \nu_j\in \mathbb{R} \}$ in the supremum-norm are called almost periodic functions. An almost periodic function $f$ ...

It is well established that the Riesz transform is well-defined for $f\in L^p(\mathbb{R}^d)$ via$$
\mathcal{R}_jf(x) = c_d\lim_{\epsilon\to 0}\int_{|x-y|>\epsilon}\frac{(x^j-y^j)f(y)}{|x-y|^{d+1}}\,...
