Wayne State harmonic analysis conference – and: don’t believe everything you read on the arXiv!

November 16, 2009

I was at Wayne State this weekend. I agreed to fill in for someone at the last minute, and I used these slides. They might not be totally self-explanatory, but you can look at them if you’d like.

It also contains a recent discovery that the exponent of 1/8 is mistaken. I found a mistake in the computation of the exponent. Before, it was thought that it only depended on 3 or 4 things, but now it seems that it depends on 8 or 12 things running through the whole paper in technical places and depending on several different constants. I ran the numbers a few times and didn’t get the same exponent twice, but I was getting things between 1/88 and 1/92; let’s call it 1/100. There will be a new version, either in the arXiv or submitted to a journal directly which addresses this update.
