# An x-ray estimate in $R^n$

@article{Laba1999AnXE, title={An x-ray estimate in \$R^n\$}, author={Izabella Laba and Terence Tao}, journal={arXiv: Classical Analysis and ODEs}, year={1999} }

We prove an x-ray estimate in general dimension which is stronger than the Kakeya estimates of Wolff. This generalizes an x-ray estimate in three dimensions which is also due to Wolff.

Mathematics

We use the arithmetic-combinatorial method of Katz and Tao to give mixed-norm estimates for the X-ray transform on $${\mathbb {R}^d}$$ when d ≥ 4.

### An incidence bound for $k$-planes in $F^n$ and a planar variant of the Kakeya maximal function

Mathematics

We discuss a planar variant of the Kakeya maximal function in the setting of a vector space over a finite field. Using methods from incidence combinatorics, we demonstrate that the operator is…

### New bounds for Kakeya problems

Mathematics

We establish new estimates on the Minkowski and Hausdorff dimensions of Kakeya sets and we obtain new bounds on the Kakeya maximal operator.

Abstract. We use geometrical combinatorics arguments, including the "hairbrush" argument of Wolff [W1], the x-ray estimates in [W2], [LT], and the sticky/plany/grainy analysis of [KLT], to show that…

A Besicovitch set is a set which contains a unit line segment in any direction. It is known that the Minkowski and Hausdorfi dimensions of such a set must be greater than or equal to 5= 2i n 3 . In…

Mathematics

A $(d,k)$ set is a subset of $\rea^d$ containing a translate of every $k$-dimensional plane. Bourgain showed that for $k \geq \kcrit(d)$, where $\kcrit(d)$ solves $2^{\kcrit-1}+\kcrit = d$, every…

Let F be a finite field with characteristic greater than two. A Besicovitch set in F 4 is a set P ⊆ F 4 containing a line in every direction. The Kakeya conjecture asserts that P and F 4 have roughly…
