We prove analogues of the Szemeredi-Trotter theorem and other incidence theorems using $\delta$-tubes in place of straight lines, assuming that the $\delta$-tubes are well-spaced in a strong sense. 
An incidence estimate and a Furstenberg type estimate for tubes in $\mathbb{R}^2$
We study the δ-discretized Szemerédi-Trotter theorem and Furstenberg set problem. We prove sharp estimates for both two problems assuming tubes satisfy some spacing condition. For both two problems,Expand
An Incidence Result for Well-Spaced Atoms in all Dimensions
We prove an incidence result counting the $k$-rich $\delta$-tubes induced by a well-spaced set of $\delta$-atoms. Our result coincides with the bound that would be heuristically predicted by theExpand
Given a collection of α-dimensional δ-tubes and β-dimensional δballs in the plane, we consider the problem of finding the maximum number of incidences, or pairs (t, b) of tubes and balls such that bExpand
A sharp $L^{10}$ decoupling for the twisted cubic
We prove a sharp $l^{10}(L^{10})$ decoupling for the moment curve in $\mathbb{R}^3$. The proof involves a two-step decoupling combined with new incidence estimates for planks, tubes and plates.
We prove an lL decoupling inequality for functions on R with Fourier transform supported in a neighborhood of short Dirichlet sequences {log n} 1/2 n=N+1 , as well as sequences with similar convexityExpand
Decoupling inequalities for short generalized Dirichlet sequences
We study decoupling theory for functions on R with Fourier transform supported in a neighborhood of short Dirichlet sequences {log n} 1/2 n=N+1 , as well as sequences with similar convexityExpand
A nonlinear version of Bourgain's projection theorem
We prove a version of Bourgain's projection theorem for parametrized families of $C^2$ maps, that refines the original statement even in the linear case. As one application, we show that if $A$ is aExpand
A Marstrand type slicing theorem for subsets of $\mathbb{Z}^2 \subset \mathbb{R}^2$ with the mass dimension
We prove a Marstrand type slicing theorem for the subsets of the integer square lattice. This problem is the dual of the corresponding projection theorem, which was considered by Glasscock, and LimaExpand
A Sum-Product Estimate for Well Spaced Sets
We study the $\delta$-discretized sum-product estimates for well spaced sets. Our main result is: for a fixed $\alpha\in(1,\frac{3}{2}]$, we prove that for any $\sim|A|^{-1}$-separated setExpand
Planar incidences and geometric inequalities in the Heisenberg group
We prove that if $P,\mathcal{L}$ are finite sets of $\delta$-separated points and lines in $\mathbb{R}^{2}$, the number of $\delta$-incidences between $P$ and $\mathcal{L}$ is no larger than aExpand


On the Number of Incidences Between Points and Curves
We apply an idea of Szekely to prove a general upper bound on the number of incidences between a set of m points and a set of n ‘well-behaved’ curves in the plane.
Incidences with Curves in R
We prove that the number of incidences between m points and n bounded-degree curves with k degrees of freedom in R is

We prove full Hausdorff dimension in a variant of the Kakeya problem involving circles in the plane, and also sharp estimates for the relevant maximal function. These results can also be formulatedExpand

We show that an old but not well-known lower bound for the crossing number of a graph yields short proofs for a number of bounds in discrete plane geometry which were considered hard before: theExpand
The discretized sum-product and projection theorems
We give a new presentation of the discrete ring theorem for sets of real numbers [B]. Special attention is given to the relation between the various parameters. As an application, new Marstrand typeExpand

Some Connections between Falconer's Distance Set Conjecture and Sets of Furstenburg Type
In this paper we investigate three unsolved conjectures in geomet- ric combinatorics, namely Falconer's distance set conjecture, the dimension of Furstenburg sets, and Erdos's ring conjecture. WeExpand
The proof of the $l^2$ Decoupling Conjecture
We prove the $l^2$ Decoupling Conjecture for compact hypersurfaces with positive definite second fundamental form and also for the cone. This has a wide range of important consequences. One of themExpand
An improved point‐line incidence bound over arbitrary fields
We prove a new upper bound for the number of incidences between points and lines in a plane over an arbitrary field F, a problem first considered by Bourgain, Katz and Tao. Specifically, we show thatExpand
