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

Convergence and Recurrence of Z actions

Ergodic Ramsey Theory started with Furstenberg’s proof of Szemeredi’s theorem in arithmetic progressions in 1977. Through a correspondence principle, Furstenberg realized that Szemeredi’s theorem follows from a dynamical statement: for every invertible, ergodic measure preserving transformation of a probability space … Continue reading
