by Jacques Peyrière


2018 / viii + 115 pages / Softcover / 978-1-611975-41-3 / List $59.00 / SIAM Member $41.30 / Order Code: OT159

Keywords: singular integral, Hilbert transform, Riesz transforms, Littlewood-Paley theory, spherical harmonics


In just over 100 pages, this book provides basic, essential knowledge of some of the tools of real analysis: the Hardy–Littlewood maximal operator, the Calderón–Zygmund theory, the Littlewood–Paley theory, interpolation of spaces and operators, and the basics of H1 and BMO spaces. This concise text offers brief proofs and exercises of various difficulties designed to challenge and engage students.

An Introduction to Singular Integrals is meant to give first-year graduate students in Fourier analysis and partial differential equations an introduction to harmonic analysis. While some background material is included in the appendices, readers should have a basic knowledge of functional analysis, some acquaintance with measure and integration theory, and familiarity with the Fourier transform in Euclidean spaces.
