Erdős asked whether every set of natural numbers with positive density contains the (arithmetic) sum B+C of two infinite sets B and C of natural numbers. In joint work with Florian Richter and Donald Robertson we answered this question affirmatively, borrowing some ideas from ergodic theory. I will talk about this and related questions, several of which are still open, and then explain the main ideas that go into the proof.
