If $f$ is a function supported on a truncated paraboloid, what can we say about $Ef$, the Fourier transform of f? Stein conjectured in the 1960s that for any $p>3$, $\|Ef\|_{L^p(R^3)} \lesssim \|f\|_{L^{\infty}}$.

We make a small progress toward this conjecture and show that it holds for $p> 3+3/13\approx 3.23$. In the proof, we combine polynomial partitioning techniques introduced by Guth and the two ends argument introduced by Wolff and Tao.
