Tao’s Proof of (logarithmically averaged) Chowla’s conjecture for two point correlations

The Liouville function is the completely multiplicative function with for every prime . The Chowla conjecture predicts that this function behaves randomly. Here is a version of this conjecture. Conjecture 1 (Chowla) For every finite set , This conjecture received … Continue reading

Optimal intersectivity

In ergodic Ramsey theory, one often wants to prove that certain dynamically defined sets in a probability space intersect (or “recur”) in non-trivial ways. Typically, this is achieved by studying the long term behavior of the sets as the dynamics … Continue reading
