||In the first part we consider restriction theorems for hypersurfaces [Gamma] in Rn, with the affine curvature [fòrmula] introduced as a mitigating factor. Sjolin, , showed that there is a universal restriction theorem for all convex curves in R2. We show that in dimensions greater than two there is no analogous universal restriction theorem for hypersurfaces with non-negative curvature. In the second part we discuss decay estimates for the Fourier transform of the density [fòrmula] supported on the surface and investigate the relationship between restriction and decay in this setting. It is well-known that restriction theorems follow from appropriate decay estimates; one would like to know whether restriction and decay are, in fact, equivalent. We show that this is not the case in two dimensions. We also go some way towards a classification of those curves/surfaces for which decay holds by giving some sufficient conditions and some necessary conditions for decay.
