BCAM Severo Ochoa Master Class: What is Harmonic Analysis?

Date: Wed, Dec 15 2021

Hour: 12:00

Location: Sala Adela Moyua at Facultad de Ciencia y Tecnología, UPV/EHU, and Online

Speakers: María Jesús Carro

TIME: From 12:00 to 13:30
LOCATION: Sala Adela Moyua at Facultad de Ciencia y Tecnología, UPV/EHU, and Online

The purpose of this master class is to give an introduction to the area of Harmonic Analysis that every graduate student can easily follow. It will start with a very basic introduction to Mathematical Analysis in order to better understand what part of this big area corresponds to Harmonic Analysis. We shall be both concerned with theoretical results and applications to real problems that can be described using Fourier Analysis techniques. No theorems will be proved, but some of them will be stated and motivated. We shall also present several open problems in the area.

Short Bio
María Jesús Carro has developed a prominent research career within the area of Fourier Analysis and Functional Analysis. She has published more than 90 research papers in prestigious journals with more than 40 collaborators, being an international reference in the former fields. Her most important contributions concern results on weighted estimates for the maximal operator on Lebesgue and Lorentz spaces and on extrapolation theory. Prof. Carro has been vice president of CEMAT, member of the panel of i-MATH, Ikerbasque coordinator in Mathematics and Engineering, and the head of Accreditation panel of Mathematics and Sciences at ANECA. In 2003, she received the Distinction of Generalitat de Catalunya for the Promotion of University Research. In 2020 she was awarded the RSME Medal.
