The goal of the course is to give a brief introduction to the method of microlocal analysis, mostly in the semiclassical setting. We shall also discuss the applications to Anosov flows. Details are as follows:



1.    Oscillatory integrals. Method of stationary phase.


2.    Pseudodifferential operators, symbol calculus.


3.    Wavefront set, microlocality.


4.    Microlocal estimates: elliptic estimates, propagation estimates, etc.


5.    Anosov flows, zeta functions, resonances and trace formula.


6.    Anisotropic Sobolev spaces and resolvent estimates.


7.    Smale’s conjecture on meromorphic continuation of zeta functions.


8.    (Optional) Counting resonances.







1.    Theory of distributions and Fourier transforms.


2.    Basic theory of differential manifolds, vector bundles and flows.
