I am a Professor in the Department of Mathematics of Stanford University.

My address is: Department of Mathematics, Building 380, Stanford University, 450 Serra Mall, Stanford CA 94305-2125, USA. My fax number is 650-725-4066.

My e-mail address is andras "at" math dot stanford dot edu.

This year I am teaching (where for now only some links are working, and some are for past versions of the course):- Math 172, Lebesgue Integration and Fourier Analysis, in winter 2014. This is similar to 205A, but designed for undergraduate students, and for graduate students in other departments. It also includes basic Fourier analysis.
- Math 256B, Partial differential equations, in winter 2014. This is an advanced graduate PDE class, focusing on Melrose's so-called b-(pseudo)differential operators, but no PDE background is required. (Thus, 256A is not a prerequisite.) However, a thorough knowledge of functional analysis and Fourier analysis (as presented in the Math 205 sequence) is a must. In the Riemannian world b-analysis includes manifolds with cylindrical ends, and in the Lorentzian world such diverse spaces as Minkowski space, a neighborhood of the static patch of de Sitter space, and Kerr-de Sitter space, as well as various spaces which asymptotically have a similar (but not necessarily the same!) structure. In addition, b-analysis helps analyze the standard boundary value problems in wave propagation; time permitting this will be discussed as well.
- Math 256A, Partial differential equations, in spring 2014. This is an advanced graduate PDE class, but with no PDE background required. However, a thorough knowledge of functional analysis as in 205A-B is a must. The course relies on Leon Simon's lecture notes. This course should be appropriate for first year graduate students.

Some recent quals are posted here for fast dissemination:

- Spring 2013,
- Fall 2012,
- Spring 2012,
- Fall 2011, with a clarification (see brackets),
- Spring 2011, with a correction (see brackets),
- Fall 2010.

Last year (2012-2013) I taught:

- Math 131P, Partial differential equations I, in autumn 2012. This is an undergraduate PDE class geared towards students interested in sciences/engineering.
- Math 220, Partial Differential Equations of Applied Mathematics, in autumn 2012.
- Math 205B, Real Analysis, in winter 2013.

- Math 256B, Partial differential equations, in winter 2012. This is an advanced graduate PDE class, focusing on scattering theory, but no PDE background is required. (Thus, 256A is not a prerequisite.) However, a thorough knowledge of functional analysis and Fourier analysis (as presented in the Math 205 sequence) is a must.
- Math 394, Classics in Analysis, in winter 2012.
- Math 171, Fundamental Concepts of Analysis, in spring 2012.
- Math 256A, Partial differential equations, in spring 2012. This is an advanced graduate PDE class, but with no PDE background required. However, a thorough knowledge of functional analysis as in 205A-B is a must. The course relies on Leon Simon's lecture notes. This course should be appropriate for first year graduate students.

In 2010-2011 I taught:

- Math 205B, Real Analysis, in winter 2011.
- Math 256B, Partial differential equations, in winter 2011. This is an advanced graduate PDE class, focusing on microlocal analysis, but no PDE background is required. (Thus, 256A is not a prerequisite.) However, a thorough knowledge of functional analysis and Fourier analysis (as presented in the Math 205 sequence) is a must. The course is based on Richard Melrose's lecture notes, volume 2 of Michael Taylor's PDE book, and additional material supplied by the instructor. We cover pseudodifferential operators, their use in elliptic and hyperbolic PDE, and hopefully scattering theory.
- Math 171, Fundamental Concepts of Analysis, in spring 2011.

In 2009-2010 I taught:

- Math 220, Partial Differential Equations of Applied Mathematics, in autumn 2009.
- Math 205B, Real Analysis, in winter 2010.

In 2008-2009 I taught:

- Math 205B, Real Analysis, in winter 2009.
- Math 171, Fundamental Concepts of Analysis, in spring 2009.
- Math 256A, Partial differential equations, in spring 2009. This is an advanced graduate PDE class, but with no PDE background required. However, a thorough knowledge of functional analysis as in 205A-B is a must. The syllabus is somewhat different from the previous year's version (see below) relying instead on Leon Simon's lecture notes. This course should be appropriate for first year graduate students.

Winter quarter 2008 I taught

- Math 205B, Real Analysis. The second quarter of the graduate real analysis sequence covers functional analysis. We use Reed and Simon's Functional Analysis (volume 1 of `Methods of Mathematical Physics'), quickly covering Chapter 1 as background (except the measure theory part, which was covered in 205A), and start with Chapter 2 (Hilbert spaces). We cover Banach spaces, topological spaces, locally convex vector spaces, bounded operators, the spectral theorem, and hopefully unbounded operators. There will be an in-class midterm, a take-home midterm, and regular homework assignments (but no final).

Autumn 2007 I taught:

- Math 113. This is a `linear algebra done right' course (as is the title of the primary text). It does not assume any linear algebra background, or a background in writing proofs. However, one of the goals of the course is to make you proficient in proof-writing, which is a crucial skill for more advanced mathematics courses, as well as a mechanism by which you can test your understanding of the material. For an application-oriented linear algebra class, see Math 103. You may want to try out both courses at the beginning of the quarter to see which suits your taste better.
- Math 256A. Partial differential equations. This was an advanced graduate PDE class, but no PDE background was required. However, a thorough knowledge of functional analysis and Fourier analysis (as presented in the Math 205 sequence) was a must. The course was based on Michael Taylor's PDE book and Richard Melrose's lecture notes.

- Math 174A, Topics in Differential Equations with Applications. We use Michael Taylor's Partial Differential Equations: I (Basic Theory). This book covers both ODEs and PDEs, and has an approach that naturally leads to extensions in modern PDE theory that we cannot cover this quarter. The book is fairly advanced, but if read carefully, with attention paid in lectures too, it should be a great reference. We cover only small parts of the book: the first half of Chapter 1 (ODEs), and Chapter 3 (Fourier series and Fourier transform), with perhaps a little bit of Chapter 2. There will be a midterm, a final, and regular homework assignments.

In spring 2004, back at MIT, I taught 18.157, Introduction to Microlocal Analysis: here is the web page. The previous fall I taught 18.152, Introduction to Partial Differential Equations: here is the web page. In March 2004, I gave a lecture at the Clay Mathematics Institute on distribution theory; if you are an undergraduate interested in the flavor of modern analysis, please have a look at the overheads in postscript or pdf format.

Inventiones Math 194:381-513 (2013). Original preprint from 2010; revised 2011, again in 2012. Posted version added detail and explanation to the previous version, as well as the argument on pp.89-90 checking a hypothesis of the Wunsch-Zworski setup that was not checked in full generality in the earlier version, and correcting several imprecise statements in Subsection 3.3. It also rearranged the previous version, moving the large imaginary sigma part to the final section of the paper to make the rest more readable. This version added detail and explanation to the original version, resulting in new Subsections 3.3 and 2.7, as well as the expansion of Subsection 3.2, apart from minor changes. See the Acknowledgments section at the end of the preprint for additional information. The previous posted version fixed a few typos and minor issues compared to the originally posted version, and adds some references.

Together with Richard Melrose and Maciej Zworski, I gave a series of lectures at the beginning of November, 1998, at the Aarhus workshop on Geometric scattering. My lectures focused on propagation estimates (as in propagation of `singularities' for generalized eigenfunctions) and its consequences (structure of S-matrices) in many-body scattering. Here is a very brief description of the lectures.

This page (together with its predecessors at Berkeley and MIT) has been accessed at least times since April 18, 1997.
