Every set lacking nonzero differences in $h(\mathbb{Z}^{\ell}) satisfies certain nonsingularity conditions, provided $h ($h) contains a multiple of every natural number and $h$ satisfies certain nontingingularity conditions.Expand

Let k > 1 be a fixed integer, and PN be the set of primes no more than N . We prove that if set A ⊂ PN contains no patterns p1, p1 + (p2 − 1), where p1, p2 are prime numbers, then |A| |PN | ≪ ( log… Expand

We establish quantitative bounds on the U[N ] Gowers norms of the Möbius function μ and the von Mangoldt function Λ for all k, with error terms of shapeO((log logN)−c). As a consequence, we obtain… Expand

Suppose that A is a subset of {1,...,N} such that the difference between any two elements of A is never one less than a prime. We show that |A| = O(N exp(-c(log N)^{1/4})) for some absolute c>0.

We show that if A is a subset of {1, …, n} which has no pair of elements whose difference is equal to p − 1 with p a prime number, then the size of A is O(n(log log n)−c(log log log log log n)) for… Expand
