When defining the amount of additive structure on a set it is often convenient to consider certain sumsets; Calculating the cardinality of these sumsets can elucidate the set's underlying structure. We begin by investigating finite sets of perfect squares and associated sumsets. We reveal how arithmetic progressions efficiently reduce the cardinality of(More)
In 1936, Margarete C. Wolf showed that the ring of symmetric free polynomials in two or more variables is isomorphic to the ring of free polynomials in infinitely many variables. We show that Wolf's theorem is a special case of a general theory of the ring of invariant free polynomials: every ring of invariant free poly-nomials is isomorphic to a free(More)
