David Conlon: Difference sets in higher dimensions

Speaker :Conlon David

Let d2 be a natural number. We determine the minimum possible size of the difference set AA in terms of |A| for any sufficiently large finite subset A of Rd that is not contained in a translate of a hyperplane. By a construction of Stanchescu, this is best possible and thus resolves an old question first raised by Uhrin. If time permits, we will also discuss some recent related results. Joint work with Jeck Lim.
