Paata Ivanisvili, UC Irvine, Bellman function in analysis
- This event has passed.
Many estimates in analysis have certain “common structures” which makes it possible to obtain them with what is now called Bellman function method. Originally the method appeared in control theory (stochastic or deterministic), however its systematic use in harmonic analysis or probability started only recently in works of Burkholder where he obtained the sharp constants in Lp estimates of martingale transforms. I will speak about Bellman functions, and in particular I will illustrate solutions of a class of extremal problems on BMO space using Bellman function technique.
