## MATH 262: Applied Fourier Analysis and Elements of Modern Signal Processing (CME 372)

Introduction to the mathematics of the Fourier transform and how it arises in a number of imaging problems. Mathematical topics include the Fourier transform, the Plancherel theorem, Fourier series, the Shannon sampling theorem, the discrete Fourier transform, and the spectral representation of stationary stochastic processes. Computational topics include fast Fourier transforms (FFT) and nonuniform FFTs. Applications include Fourier imaging (the theory of diffraction, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging) and the theory of compressive sensing.

## MATH 263A: Algebraic Combinatorics and Symmetric Functions

Symmetric function theory unifies large parts of combinatorics. Theorems about permutations, partitions, and graphs now follow in a unified way. Topics: The usual bases (monomial, elementary, complete, and power sums). Schur functions. Representation theory of the symmetric group. Littlewood-Richardson rule, quasi-symmetric functions, combinatorial Hopf algebras, introduction to Macdonald polynomials. Throughout, emphasis is placed on applications (e.g. to card shuffling and random matrix theory). Prerequisite: 210A and 210B, or equivalent.

## MATH 263B: Crystal Bases: Representations and Combinatorics

Crystal Bases are combinatorial analogs of representation theorynof Lie groups. We will explore different aspects of thesenanalogies and develop rigorous purely combinatorial foundations.

## MATH 263C: Topics in Representation Theory

Conformal Field Theory is a branch of physics with origins in solvable lattice models and string theory. But the mathematics that it has inspired has many applications in pure mathematics.nWe will give an introduction to this theory with related representation theories of the Virasoro and affine Lie algebras, and vertex operators.nnPrerequisites: we will not assume any particular knowledge from physics, but some knowledge of Lie algebras will be helpful.nnNOTE: Undergraduates require instructor permission to enroll. Undergraduates interested in taking the course should contact the instructor for permission, providing information about relevant background such as performance in prior coursework, reading, etc.nnnMay be repeated for credit.
