A restriction estimate in $\mathbb{R}^3$
Hong Wang, Department of Mathematics, MIT,

If f is a function supported on a truncated paraboloid, what can we say about Ef, the Fourier transform of f? Stein conjectured in the 1960s that for any p>3, $\|Ef\|_{L^p(R^3)} \lesssim \|f\|_{L^{\infty}}$.

We make a small progress toward this conjecture and show that p> 3+3/13\approx 3.23. In the proof, we combine polynomial partitioning techniques introduced by Guth and the two ends argument introduced by Wolff and Tao.
