Lecture 25: Structure of Set Addition V: Additive Energy and Balog-Szemerédi-Gowers Theorem

Description: Additive energy is a measure of additive structure. Professor Zhao explains why a set with large additive energy must have a large subset of small doubling. The proof is graph theoretic and uses the dependent random choice method.

Instructor: Yufei Zhao
