# The discrete spherical averages over a family of sparse sequences

@article{Hughes2016TheDS, title={The discrete spherical averages over a family of sparse sequences}, author={Kevin A. Hughes}, journal={arXiv: Classical Analysis and ODEs}, year={2016} }

We initiate the study of the $\ell^p(\mathbb{Z}^d)$-boundedness of the arithmetic spherical maximal function over sparse sequences. We state a folklore conjecture for lacunary sequences, a key example of Zienkiewicz and prove new bounds for a family of sparse sequences that achieves the endpoint of the Magyar--Stein--Wainger theorem for the full discrete spherical maximal function. Perhaps our most interesting result is the boundedness of a discrete spherical maximal function in $\mathbb{Z}^4… Expand
