Szemerédi’s Theorem Part IV – Weak mixing extensions

This is the fourth in a series of six posts I am writing about Szemerédi’s theorem. In the first three posts, besides setting up the notation and definitions necessary, I reduced Szemerédi’s theorem to three facts. Those three facts are … Continue reading

Sated extensions

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
