A sharp $L^{10}$ decoupling for the twisted cubic
We prove a sharp $l^{10}(L^{10})$ decoupling for the moment curve in $\mathbb{R}^3$. The proof involves a two-step decoupling combined with new incidence estimates for planks, tubes and plates.
Planar incidences and geometric inequalities in the Heisenberg group
We prove that if $P,\mathcal{L}$ are finite sets of $\delta$-separated points and lines in $\mathbb{R}^{2}$, the number of $\delta$-incidences between $P$ and $\mathcal{L}$ is no larger than aExpand
Square function inequality for a class of Fourier integral operators satisfying cinematic curvature conditions
Abstract In this paper, we establish an improved variable coefficient version of the square function inequality, by which the local smoothing estimate Lαp→Lp{L^{p}_{\alpha}\to L^{p}} for the FourierExpand
Variation bounds for spherical averages
We consider $r$-variation operators for the family of spherical means, with special emphasis on $L^p\to L^q$ estimates.
Maximal polynomial modulations of singular integrals
Let $K$ be a standard H\"older continuous Calder\'on--Zygmund kernel on $\mathbb{R}^{\mathbf{d}}$ whose truncations define $L^2$ bounded operators. We show that the maximal operator obtained byExpand

Wave front sets, local smoothing and Bourgain's circular maximal theorem
The purpose of this paper is to improve certain known regularity results for the wave equation and to give a simple proof of Bourgain's circular maximal theorem [1]. We use easy wave front analysisExpand
Mean square of zeta function, circle problem and divisor problem revisited
This paper is closely related to the recent work [BW17] of the same authors and our purpose is to elaborate more on some of the results and methods from [BW17]. More specifically our goal isExpand
A trilinear approach to square function and local smoothing estimates for the wave operator
The purpose of this paper is to improve Mockenhaupt's square function estimate and Sogge's local smoothing estimate in $\mathbb R^3$. For this we use the trilinear approach of S. Lee and A. VargasExpand
On the cone multiplier in R3
Abstract We prove the sharp L 3 bounds for the cone multiplier in R 3 and the associated square function, which is known as Mockenhauptʼs square function.
Homogenous Fourier multipliers of Marcinkiewicz type
This 1995 paper contains a sharp version of the classical Marcinkiewicz multiplier theorem for the class of homogeneous Fourier multipliers in two dimensions; here a one-dimensional MarcinkiewiczExpand
Propagation of singularities and maximal functions in the plane
SummaryIn this work we mainly generalize Bourgain's circular maximal function to include variable coefficient averages. Our techniques involve a combination of Bourgain's basic ideas plus microlocalExpand
Averages in the plane over convex curves and maximal operators
Small cap decouplings
We develop a toolbox for proving decouplings into boxes with diameter smaller than the canonical scale. As an application of this new technique, we solve three problems for which earlier methods haveExpand
Incidence estimates for well spaced tubes
We prove analogues of the Szemeredi-Trotter theorem and other incidence theorems using $\delta$-tubes in place of straight lines, assuming that the $\delta$-tubes are well-spaced in a strong sense.
