Topic:

Polynomial configurations in difference sets

Description:

Suppose $A$ is a subset of the integers of positive density. We prove a
quantitative result on the existence of linearly independent polynomial
configurations in the difference set of $A$. Our approach is based on
first establishing a higher dimensional analogue of a theorem of
S\'{a}rk\"{o}zy and Furstenberg, and then applying a simple lifting
argument. This is joint work with Neil Lyall.
