# Graduate Seminar, S4B1: Nonlinear Fourier Analysis, WS 2015/16

Organizers: Prof. Dr. Christoph Thiele, Dr. Diogo Oliveira e SilvaWebpage: www.math.uni-bonn.de/ag/ana/WiSe1516/S4B1_WS_1516.html

## Introduction

The nonlinear Fourier transform and the nonlinear Fourier series are basic models for a type of analysis done in many parts of mathematics. Related key words are: scattering transform, orthogonal polynomials, Schur's algorithm, Riemann-Hilbert problems, integrable systems, operator theory. This seminar will present an introduction to the theory that runs parallel to the usual basic development of linear Fourier analysis, with particular emphasis on the intricacies in the nonlinear setting that occur on the space of square summable sequences. For interested students, the seminar may lead to a Master thesis assignment. Due to the foundational nature of the subject, this seminar is also an excellent addition for students interested in related fields such as mathematical physics or integrable nonlinear equations.## Structure

We will meet once a week starting on the second week of the semester on**Tuesdays 16:00(s.t.)-18:00**in

**SR0.003**. A preliminary organizational meeting took place on Thursday, October 15, 14:00(s.t.)-14:30. This occasion was used to make assignments from this

**list of topics**and to decide the final schedule for our subsequent meetings, see below. Participants will present their assignments throughout the semester. Interested students may request an examination for credit.
