We report on a version of Cwikel’s proof of the famous Cwikel–Lieb–Rozenblum (CLR) inequality which highlights the connection of the CLR inequality to maximal Fourier multipliers. This new approach enables us to get a constant at least ten times better than Cwikels in all dimensions. In dimensions d5d\geq 5 our results are better than all previously known ones.
