Title: Helson matrices

Abstract: The infinite dimensional torus T is a compact abelian group. Its dual is the group of positive rational numbers Q+. Is there a function ψ ∈ L(T) with Fourier coefficients

\(\widehat{\psi}(n) = \frac{1}{\sqrt{n}\,\log{n}}\)

for n=2,3,4,...? The goal of my talk is to explain why this question is interesting.
