Inequalities in the Setting of Clifford Analysis

  • Jamel El Kamel
  • Rim Jday


In this paper, we prove the Riemann-Lebesgue lemma for the Clifford-Fourier transform. We give an alternative proof of Heisenberg’s inequality. Furthermore, we provide a version of Young inequalities in the framework of Clifford analysis.
