The department has a focus on the interplay of classical Euclidean harmonic analysis with the modern theory of PDEs; we study harmonic analytic ideas in number theory, geometric measure theory, combinatorics, and discrete geometry and geometrically invariant inequalities and we investigate applications of harmonic analysis to elliptic and parabolic PDEs with rough coefficients and/or on rough domains; we also study: nonlinear hyperbolic, dispersive and kinetic equations and systems arising in the classical field theories of mathematical physics, mathematical biology and in connection with black holes in mathematical general relativity; free-boundary problems, optimal mass transportation and Monge-Amp�re equations in nonlinear elasticity and other continuum theories; well-posedness for supercritical initial value problems with noisy initial data.
