Title: A gentle introduction to Fourier restriction inequalities
Abstract: Initiated by Elias Stein in late 1960’s the Fourier restriction conjecture has played a central part in the development of modern harmonic analysis. Despite continuous progress over the last five decades, currently this remains out of reach in dimensions bigger than two. To get a better sense of restriction inequalities, we consider Fourier restriction estimates onto curves $\gamma : \R \to \Rd$. Even in this wellexplored setting, there are many basic questions that remain open such as the question of existence of maximizers for such inequalities. This talk will be a gentle introduction to such questions and some recent progress on these. This is based on our recent works with Betsy Stovall (at University of Wisconsin Madison).

Title: Multiplicities in flat local extensions
Abstract: We introduce the notion of strongly Lechindependent ideals as a generalization of Lechindependent ideals defined by Lech and Hanes, and use this notion to derive inequalities on multiplicities of ideals. In particular we prove that if (R,m) and (S,n) are Noetherian local rings of the same dimension, S is a flat local extension of R,and up to completion S is standard graded over a field and I=mS is homogeneous, then the multiplicity of R is no greater than that of S.
