Title:Polynomial configurations in difference sets
Seminar:Algebra and Number Theory Seminar
Speaker:Neil Lyall, University of Georgia
Abstract:
We will discuss some extensions/generalizations of the striking and elegant fact (proved independently by Furstenberg and Sarkozy) that any subset of the integers of positive upper density necessarily contains two distinct elements whose difference is a perfect square. This is joint work with Akos Magyar.
