Part I: Sharp weighted bounds for the multilinear maximal function and sparse operators

Part II: Sharp bounds for multilinear Calderón-Zygmund operators


The purpose of this course is to give a short but detailed introduction to multilinear weighted inequalities and the usual techniques of proof in the area.

On one hand, we start describing the main object in this area, the multilinear maximal function, and how it controls the class of multilinear Calderón-Zygmund operators and allow us to define the right class of multiple weights. We also prove the generalization of Muckenhoupt's one and two-weight problems for the multilinear maximal function as well as some multiple (sharp) weighted inequalities for multilinear maximal functions and sparse operators.

On the other hand, we give a pointwise control of multilinear Calderón-Zygmund operators of Dini type by sparse operators. As a consequence of this result and using some mixed weighted bounds for a general class of sparse operators, we will be able to show similar bounds for several multilinear operators such us Calderón-Zygmund operators, their commutators with BMO functions, square functions and Fourier multipliers.
