Popular Differences for Corners in Abelian Groups

26 Sep 2019 Berger Aaron

For a compact abelian group $G$, a corner in $G \times G$ is a triple of points $(x,y)$, $(x,y+d)$, $(x+d,y)$. The classical corners theorem of Ajtai and Szemer\'edi implies that for every $\alpha > 0$, there is some $\delta > 0$ such that every subset $A \subset G \times G$ of density $\alpha$ contains a $\delta$ fraction of all corners in $G \times G$, as $x,y,d$ range over $G$...
