 Taylor Harmonic Analysis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Abstract Harmonic Analysis refers to all aspects of analysis on locally compact groups.
This class of groups is particularily suitable for analysis due to the existence of a left (or a right) invariant measure, called Haar measure, on any such group.
If G is a locally compact group, the set of equivalence classes of irreducible unitary representations of G is denoted G^ and is called the dual space of G. There is a natural topology on G^ which usually fails to be Hausdorff.

In these lectures we will illustrate how modern techniques and phenomena from euclidean harmonic analysis (such as the restriction phenomenon; see Dr. Wisewell's lectures click) can be employed to prove existence and uniqueness of solutions to nonlinear hyperbolic partial differential equations as well as to study some qualitative properties of such solutions.
Many of the central problems of Euclidean Harmonic Analysis, as outlined in Dr. Wisewell's lectures click, seem to be a very long way off from seeing a complete solution.
