Title: Fourier Analysis of Null Forms and Non-linear Wave Equations

The non-linear terms of many equations, including Wave Maps and Yang-Mills have a special, ``null'', structure. In joint work with Sergiu Klainerman, I use techniques of Fourier Analysis, such as generalizations and refinements of the restriction theorem applied to null forms to study the optimal Sobolev space in which such non-linear wave equations are well posed.
