Introduction to Additive combinatorics.(Feb-March, 2011)
Abstract:In these lectures we intend to present examples of some relatively recent yet not too difficult methods in Additive Combinatorics. In particular the analogue of Kneser's theorem for non-abelian groups due to Olson will be proved. Then we will treat the Combinatorial Nullstellensatz (on the lines of Alon) , the Isoperimetric methods (as by Hamidoune) and discrete Fourier analysis as used by Tao.
