The Cubic Case of Vinogradov's Mean Value Theorem --- A Simplified Approach to Wooley's "Efficient Congruencing"
This is an expository paper, giving a simplified proof of the cubic case of the main conjecture for Vinogradov's mean value theorem.
On the Vinogradov mean value
We discuss the recent work of C. Demeter, L. Guth and the author on the proof of the Vinogradov Main Conjecture using the decoupling theory for curves.
We apply multigrade efficient congruencing to estimate Vino- gradov's integral of degree k for moments of order 2s, establishing strongly diagonal behaviour for 1 6 s 6 1 k(k + 1) − 1 k + o(k). In
Arithmetic combinatorics on Vinogradov systems
A variant of the Balog-Szemeredi-Gowers theorem for the Vinogradov system is presented and a higher degree analogue of the sum-product phenomenon is deduced.

Vinogradov’s Mean Value Theorem as an Ingredient in Polynomial Large Sieve Inequalities and Some Consequences
We discuss the role of Vinogradov’s mean value theorem in polynomial large sieve inequalities. We present an application to the distribution of fractions with k-th power denominators. Moreover,
On a binary system of Prendiville: The cubic case
We prove sharp decoupling inequalities for a class of two dimensional non-degenerate surfaces in R^5, introduced by Prendiville. As a consequence, we obtain sharp bounds on the number of integer
A large sieve inequality for power moduli
In this note we give a new bound for large sieve with characters to power moduli which improves in some range of the parameters the previous bounds of Baier/Zhao and Halupczok.
Small fractional parts of polynomials
Using the recent result of Bourgain, Demeter and Guth on Vinogradov's mean value, a number of new results about small fractional parts of polynomials and fractional parts of additive forms are

We prove a sharp upper bound on the number of integer solutions of the Parsell–Vinogradov system in every dimension $$d\ge 2$$d≥2.


The Asymptotic Formula in Waring's Problem
We derive a new minor arc bound, suitable for applications associated with Waring’s problem, from Vinogradov’s mean value theorem. In this way, the conjectured asymptotic formula in Waring’s problem
Decoupling inequalities and some mean-value theorems
The purpose of this paper is to present some further applications of the general decoupling theory from [B-D] and [B-D2] to certain diophantine issues. In particular, we consider mean value estimates

Abstract We give a short proof of a slightly weaker version of the multilinear Kakeya inequality proven by Bennett, Carbery and Tao.
On the multilinear restriction and Kakeya conjectures
We prove d-linear analogues of the classical restriction and Kakeya conjectures in Rd. Our approach involves obtaining monotonicity formulae pertaining to a certain evolution of families of
Finite bounds for Hölder-Brascamp-Lieb multilinear inequalities
A criterion is established for the validity of multilinear inequalities of a class considered by Brascamp and Lieb, generalizing well-known inequalties of Rogers and H\"older, Young, and
Decoupling, exponential sums and the Riemann zeta function
We establish a new decoupling inequality for curves in the spirit of [B-D1], [B-D2] which implies a new mean value theorem for certain exponential sums crucial to the Bombieri-Iwaniec method as
