Discrete Harmonic Analysis

28th March 2011 to 1st April 2011

Organisers: Professor I Dinur (Weizmann), Dr K Oleszkiewicz (Warsaw) and Professor F Barthe (Toulouse)

Workshop Theme

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers who are interested in harmonic analysis in a discrete setting: in particular, properties of Fourier-Walsh expansions, influences of variables, Sobolev type inequalities and isoperimetry or concentration estimates.

Such analysis plays a role in many fields and has applications to combinatorics, theoretical computer science, probability theory, statistics and number theory. Several talks will be devoted to the interplay between the continuous and discrete settings (for example the implementation of log-concavity or curvature methods in the discrete case, geometric properties of gaussian measures and so on).
