Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 Analysis Seminars
The 2021-2022 Analysis Seminar will be organized by David Beltran and Andreas Seeger. Some of the talks will be in person (room Van Vleck B139) and some will be online. The regular time for the Seminar will be Tuesdays at 4:00 p.m. (in some cases we will schedule the seminar at different times, to accommodate speakers).
Zoom links will be sent to those who have signed up for the Analysis Seminar List. If you would like to subscribe to the Analysis seminar list, send a blank email to analysis+join (at) g-groups (dot) wisc (dot) edu. If you are from an institution different than UW-Madison, please send as well as an additional email to David and Andreas (dbeltran, seeger at math (dot) wisc (dot) edu) to notify the request.
If you'd like to suggest speakers for the fall semester please contact David and Andreas.

Abstracts
Dóminique Kemp
Decoupling by way of approximation
Since Bourgain and Demeter's seminal 2017 decoupling result for nondegenerate hypersurfaces, several attempts have been made to extend the theory to degenerate hypersurfaces $M$. In this talk, we will discuss using surfaces derived from the local Taylor expansions of $M$ in order to obtain "approximate" decoupling results. By themselves, these approximate decouplings do not avail much. However, upon considerate iteration, for a specifically chosen $M$, they culminate in a decoupling partition of $M$ into caps small enough either as originally desired or otherwise genuinely nondegenerate at the local scale. A key feature that will be discussed is the notion of approximating a non-convex hypersurface $M$ by convex hypersurfaces at various scales. In this manner, contrary to initial intuition, non-trivial $\ell^2$ decoupling results will be obtained for $M$.

Transcendental Julia Sets with Fractional Packing Dimension
If f is an entire function, the Julia set of f is the set of all points such that f and its iterates locally do not form a normal family; nearby points have very different orbits under iteration by f. A topic of interest in complex dynamics is studying the fractal geometry of the Julia set.
In this talk, we will discuss my thesis result where I construct non-polynomial (transcendental) entire functions whose Julia set has packing dimension strictly between (1,2). We will introduce various notions of dimension and basic objects in complex dynamics, and discuss a history of dimension results in complex dynamics. We will discuss some key aspects of the proof, which include a use of Whitney decompositions of domains as a tool to calculate the packing dimension, and some open questions I am thinking about.

Stability of sharp Fourier restriction to spheres
In dimension $d\in\{3, 4, 5, 6, 7\}$, we establish that the constant functions maximize the weighted $L^2(S^{d-1}) - L^4(R^d)$ Fourier extension estimate on the sphere, provided that the weight function is sufficiently regular and small, in a proper and effective sense which we will make precise. One of the main tools is an integration by parts identity, which generalizes the so-called "magic identity" of Foschi for the unweighted inequality with $d=3$, which is exactly the classical Stein-Tomas estimate.
Joint work with E.Carneiro and D.Oliveira e Silva.
Rajula Srivastava
Lebesgue space estimates for Spherical Maximal Functions on Heisenberg groups
We discuss $L^p\to L^q$ estimates for local maximal operators associated with dilates of codimension two spheres in Heisenberg groups, sharp up to endpoints. The proof shall be reduced to estimates for standard oscillatory integrals of Carleson-Sj\"olin-H\"ormander type, relying on the maximal possible number of nonvanishing curvatures for a cone in the fibers of the associated canonical relation. We shall also discuss a new counterexample which shows the sharpness of one of the edges in the region of boundedness. Based on joint work with Joris Roos and Andreas Seeger.
Itamar Oliveira
A new approach to the Fourier extension problem for the paraboloid
An equivalent formulation of the Fourier Extension (F.E.) conjecture for a compact piece of the paraboloid states that the F.E. operator maps $ L^{2+\frac{2}{d}}([0,1]^{d}) $ to $L^{2+\frac{2}{d}+\varepsilon}(\mathbb{R}^{d+1}) $ for every $\varepsilon>0 $. It has been fully solved only for $ d=1 $ and there are many partial results in higher dimensions regarding the range of $ (p,q) $ for which $L^{p}([0,1]^{d}) $ is mapped to $ L^{q}(\mathbb{R}^{d+1}) $. One can reduce matters to proving that a model operator satisfies the same mapping properties, and we will show that the conjecture holds in higher dimensions for tensor functions, meaning for all $ g $ of the form $ g(x_{1},\ldots,x_{d})=g_{1}(x_{1})\cdot\ldots\cdot g_{d}(x_{d}) $. We will present this theorem as a proof of concept of a more general framework and set of techniques that can also address multilinear versions of this problem and get similar results. This is joint work with Camil Muscalu.
