Loredana Lanzani


We give a survey of recent joint work with E.M. Stein (Princeton University) concerning the application of suitable versions of the T(1)-theorem technique to the study of orthogonal projections onto the Hardy and Bergman spaces of holomorphic functions for domains with minimal boundary regularity.
