Figures from this paper


The mathematical theory of complex measures plays significant and classical roles in abstract harmonic analysis, representation theory, functional analysis, operator theory, and C-algebras, see [16,

Harmonic analysis of Rajchman algebras.

Abstract harmonic analysis is mainly concerned with the study of locally compact groups, their unitary representations, and the function spaces associated with them. The Fourier and Fourier-Stieltjes

Lectures on C*-algebras

The following topics are presented in these notes: Elements of Banach algebras, Banach algebras of the form $L^1(G)$, where $G$ is a locally compact group, spectrum of elements of Banach algebras,

Commutative Banach algebras and modular representation theory

In a recent paper of Benson and Symonds, a new invariant was introduced for modular representations of a finite group. An interpretation was given as a spectral radius with respect to a Banach

Abstract convolution function algebras over homogeneous spaces of compact groups

CONVOLUTION FUNCTION ALGEBRAS OVER HOMOGENEOUS SPACES OF COMPACT GROUPS ARASH GHAANI FARASHAHI Abstract. This paper presents a systematic study for structure of abstract Banach function ∗-algebras

Weighted hypergroups and some questions in abstract harmonic analysis

Weighted group algebras have been studied extensively in Abstract Harmonic Analysis.Complete characterizations have been found for some important properties of weighted group algebras, namely,

On harmonic Hilbert spaces on compact abelian groups

Harmonic Hilbert spaces on locally compact abelian groups are reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces (RKHSs) of continuous functions constructed by Fourier transform of weighted L spaces on the dual

The ideal structure of measure algebras and asymptotic properties of group representations

We classify the weak*-closed maximal left ideals of the measure algebra MpGq for certain Hermitian locally compact groups G in terms of the irreducible representations of G and their asymptotic

Smooth Fourier multipliers in group algebras via Sobolev dimension

We investigate Fourier multipliers with smooth symbols defined over locally compact Hausdorff groups. Our main results in this paper establish new H\"ormander-Mikhlin criteria for spectral and
