Let M be a smooth manifold in S0305004100062654_inline1. One may ask whether S0305004100062654_inline2, the restriction of the Fourier transform of f to M makes sense for every f in S0305004100062654_inline3. Since, for S0305004100062654_inline4 does not make sense pointwise, it is natural to introduce a measure σ on M and ask for an inequality


for every f in (say) the Schwartz class. Results of this kind are called restriction theorems. An excellent survey article on this subject is to be found in Tomas[13].
