In this thesis we study three topics in Harmonic Analysis in the finite field setting. The methods used are purely combinatorial in nature. We prove a sharp result for the maximal operator associated to dilations of quadric surfaces. We use Christ’s method ([Christ, Convolution, Curvature and Combinatorics. A case study, International Math. Research Notices 19 (1998)]), for Lp→ Lq estimates for convolution with the twisted n-bic curve in the European setting, to give Lp → Lq estimates for convolution with k-dimensional surfaces in the finite field setting. We give solution to the k-plane Radon transform problem and embark on a study of a generalisation of this problem.
