Additive Number Theory

  • Introduction to Additive combinatorics.(Feb-March, 2011)

  • Gautami Bhowmik


    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.
