### Obtaining a pointwise bound on the convolution of two singular measures

I am confused about a passage in the paper by T. Tao A sharp bilinear restriction estimate for paraboloids. We are in Section 7, near equation (34) (pag.16 of the arxiv). Notations and ...

### bounding the absolute value of a trigonometric polynomial

Consider a function $f:[0,1]\rightarrow \mathbb{C}$ and points $t_0,t_1,\ldots,t_n\in[0,1]$ \begin{equation*} f(t)=\prod_{k=1}^n\frac{(e^{2\pi i t}-e^{2\pi i t_k})}{(e^{2\pi i t_0}-e^{2\pi i t_k})} ...

### Derivative indicator function

I am wondering what is the derivative of the following function with respect to $x(t)$ in sense of distributions. $$I\left(\int_0^t x(\tau)d\tau \leq c\right)$$ where $I$ is the indicator function ...

### Weakest assumption for pointwise convergence of Fourier series

This should be a quick one, but so far books, my brain, and the internet have not produced a clear answer. Or maybe it's subtle and exposes a weakness in my understanding of FS! Suppose ...

### Property/Relations using Fourier series/transform, which give complete information about all the jump singularities of a function.

Consider a function which has only jump singularities of the form of the function itself or one of its derivatives jumping. Now let $\hat{f}(k)$ be its Fourier transform/series. We know the decay of ...

### Does the Fourier series of an $L^1$ function converge to the function *weakly* in $L^1$?

Let $f$ be a periodic $L^1$ function, and $S_n[f]$ the $n$-th partial sum of its Fourier series. I am aware that $S_n[f]$ might not converge toward $f$ in $L^1$ (i.e., in norm). However, does it at ...

### On a limit at the boundary of $\mathbb{D}$ related to complex and harmonic analysis

Let $p(z,t)=\frac{1}{2\pi}.\frac{1-|z|^2}{|z-t|^2}$ be the Poisson kernel on the open unit disk $\mathbb{D}$, fix $0<\alpha<1$ . Let $a\in \partial\mathbb{D}=S^1$ be fixed. Then my question is : ...

### In Fourier Transforms: Positive Definite Functions, Bochner's Theorem, and Derivatives

I've been reading about Bochner's Theorem lately, but when I apply it to the derivative of a function, I seem to get a contradiction with the theorem. "Bochner's theorem states that a positive ...

### Ask for theory about the weighted L^2(R^d) space.

Dear MOs, I am now considering the following norm: $$||f||_{H}^2 := \iint f(x) H(x,y) f(y) d x d y\:.$$ where the integral is over the whole space $R^{2d}$ and $H(x,y)$ is some non-negative ...

### Searching for inequalities relating a convolution-type integral of functions of modulus less than but close to one.

Suppose $f(x,y)$ and $g(x,y)$ are both measurable functions from $[0,1]\times[0,1]\to \mathbb{C}$ with $|f|,|g|<1$, and let $h(x,y)=\int_{0}^1 f(x,z)g(z,y) \ dz$. (So $|h(x,y)|<1$ also.) ...

### Continuous function sort

If you have a real-valued function f(x), positive, continuous and bounded on some interval, then what kind of transform would convert this to a monotonic function g(x) on that interval analogously to ...

### Fourier transform of x2 invariant measure

Let $T:\mathbb{R}/\mathbb{Z}\rightarrow \mathbb{R}/\mathbb{Z}$ be the map defined by $T(x)=2x$, and suppose that $\mu$ is a $T$ invariant and ergodic Borel probability measure on the space, which is ...

### $L^1$ norm of the Fourier transform of a truncated Gaussian

I asked this question on Math StackExchange recently but the only useful comment I got was that this could be a good question for Math Overflow. Here it goes: Consider the Gaussian $G(x):=e^{-x^2}$ ...

### Convergence of Fourier Series of $L^1$ Functions

I recently learned of the result by Carleson and Hunt (1968) which states that if $f \in L^p$ for $p > 1$, then the Fourier series of $f$ converges to $f$ pointwise-a.e. Also, Wikipedia informs me ...

### What is this effect in Fourier/additive synthesis called?

Hi, I have re-synthesized a cyclic function additively, and I added a fixed offset to the frequency of each partial. So if the function was $\sum a_{n} sin(2 \pi x * n)$ and its frequencies were ...
