I recently learned of a promising technique in ergodic Ramsey theory that is useful to establish multiple recurrence and convergence of nonconventional ergodic averages. The trick is to reduce the general statement to certain systems, called sated systems. A common … Continue reading

Banach density with respect to a single Folner sequence

In this short post I show that in any countable amenable group the (left) upper Banach density of a set can be obtained by looking only at translations of a given Følner sequence. Definitions and the precise statement are given … Continue reading
