In mathematics, additive K-theory means some version of algebraic K-theory in which, according to Spencer Bloch, the general linear group GL has everywhere been replaced by its Lie algebra gl. It is not, therefore, one theory but a way of creating additive or infinitesimal analogues of multiplicative theories. (Wikipedia).

Introduction to additive combinatorics lecture 1.8 --- Plünnecke's theorem

In this video I present a proof of Plünnecke's theorem due to George Petridis, which also uses some arguments of Imre Ruzsa. Plünnecke's theorem is a very useful tool in additive combinatorics, which implies that if A is a set of integers such that |A+A| is at most C|A|, then for any pair

This is an introductory video to a 16-hour course on additive combinatorics given as part of Cambridge's Part III mathematics course in the academic year 2021-2. After a few remarks about practicalities, I informally discuss a few open problems, and attempt to explain what additive combina

Introduction to additive combinatorics lecture 10.1 --- the structure and properties of Bohr sets.

An important informal idea in additive combinatorics is that of a "structured" set. One example of a class of sets that are rich in additive structure is the class of Bohr sets, which play the role in general finite Abelian groups that subspaces play in the special case of groups of the fo

Introduction to additive combinatorics lecture 5.8 --- Freiman homomorphisms and isomorphisms.

The notion of a Freiman homomorphism and the closely related notion of a Freiman isomorphism are fundamental concepts in additive combinatorics. Here I explain what they are and prove a lemma that states that a subset A of F_p^N such that kA - kA is not too large is "k-isomorphic" to a sub

Introduction to additive combinatorics lecture 11.2 --- Part of the proof of Roth's theorem

Roth's theorem, one of the fundamental results of additive combinatorics, states that for every positive δ and every positive integer k there exists a positive integer n such that every subset of {1,2,...,n} of size at least δn contains an arithmetic progression of length 3. (This was late

Introduction to additive combinatorics lecture 7.3 -- dual groups and the discrete Fourier transform

The discrete Fourier transform is a fundamental tool in additive combinatorics that makes it possible to prove many interesting results that would be very hard or even impossible to prove otherwise. Here I discuss the characters on a finite Abelian group G, prove that they are orthogonal a

Introduction to additive combinatorics lecture 10.8 --- A weak form of Freiman's theorem

In this short video I explain how the proof of Freiman's theorem for subsets of Z differs from the proof given earlier for subsets of F_p^N. The answer is not very much: the main differences are due to the fact that cyclic groups of prime order do not have lots of subgroups, so one has to

Topics in Combinatorics lecture 13.8 --- The slice rank of a diagonal 3-tensor

A result that has played a central role in additive combinatorics is the statement that for every positive c there exists n such that every subset of F_3^n of density at least c contains three distinct vectors x, y and z such that x + y + z = 0. For a long time, a major open problem was to
