V5B8: Selected Topics in Analysis - Weighted inequalities

Summer Semester 2017

No lecture on July 28.
Dr. Pavel Zorin-Kranich


  • Friday 10-12, SR 0.011


  1. Hardy-Littlewood maximal function and Muckenhoupt weights
  2. Extrapolation and connection with vector-valued estimates
  3. Fefferman-Stein maximal inequality
  4. Sparse operators and sharp weighted estimates for Calderón-Zygmund operators
  5. Classical theory of A_p weights: reverse Hölder inequality, factorization, open property


Basic concepts from measure theory and functional analysis (Lebesgue integration theory, Lp spaces). Previous knowledge of Calderón-Zygmund theory might be helpful for motivation but is not assumed.


Oral exams take place on August 4 and August 10.
