Abstract
The Fourier transform and its variants (pseudo-differential operators,
Fourier integral operators) have been used with great success to invert
constant coefficient linear partial differential operators (PDOs), elliptic
PDOs, and to study the associated heat and wave operators. However,
the Fourier transform has been of limited use in the study of the class
of variable coefficient linear PDOs known as hypoelliptic operators,
which have applications in several complex variables and the study of
magnetism in quantum mechanics. There are reasons to believe that
