# The Gaussian primes contain arbitrarily shaped constellations

We show that the Gaussian primesP[i] ⊆ ℤ[i] contain infinitely constellations of any prescribed shape and orientation. More precisely, we show that given any distinct Gaussian integersv0,…,vk−1, there are infinitely many sets {a+rv0,…,rvk−1}, witha ∈ℤ[i] andr ∈ℤ{0}, all of whose elements are Gaussian primes.The proof is modeled on that in [9] and requires three ingredients. The first is a hypergraph removal lemma of Gowers and Rödl-Skokan or, more precisely, a slight strenghthening of this…

A quantitative, self-contained version of this ergodic theory proof is presented, which is ``elementary'' in the sense that it does not require the axiom of choice, the use of infinite sets or measures, or theUse of the Fourier transform or inverse theorems from additive combinatorics.

This paper considers the concept of discrepancy for k-uniform hypergraphs with an arbitrary constant density d (0) and concludes that having small deviation is equivalent to a variety of other properties that describe quasi-randomness.
