    In this talk, I will discuss the strengths and shortcomings of the Fourier transform as a tool to investigate the global analysis of PDEs. As part of this discussion, I will give various applications to problems in several complex variables and introduce a FBI transform as a more broadly applicable tool.

    We will use the techniques of harmonic analysis to establish optimal geometric inequalities. These include the sharp Hardy-Adams inequalities on hyperbolic balls and Hardy-Sobolev-Mazya inequalities on upper half spaces or hyperbolic balls. Using the Fourier analysis on hyperbolic spaces, we will be able to establish sharper...

    We discuss rigidity results of volume-preserving maps between Hermitian symmetric spaces, based on the work of Mok-Ng and my recent joint work with Fang and Huang. Moreover, we make connections with rigidity results in CR geometry.

     We will discuss examples of singularity formation from smooth data for linear and quasilinear uniformly parabolic systems in the plane.

    High-dimensional data can be difficult to analyze. Assume data are distributed on a low-dimensional manifold. The Vector Diffusion Mapping (VDM), introduced by Singer-Wu, is a non-linear dimension reduction technique and is shown robust to noise. It has applications in cryo-electron microscopy and image denoising and has...

    The problem of understanding CR geometries embedded as submanifolds in higher dimensional CR manifolds arises in higher dimensional complex analysis, including the study of singularities of analytic varieties. It has also been studied intensively in connection with rigidity questions. Despite considerable earlier work the local theory has not been...

    The method of nonlocal maximum principle was initiated by Kiselev et al (Inve. Math. 167 (2007), 445-453), and later developed by Kiselev (Adv. Math. 227 no. 5 (2011), 1806-1826) and other works. The general idea is to show that the evolution of considered equation preserves a suitable modulus of continuity, so that one gets the uniform-in-...
