DESCRIPTION:In this talk we will look at a new variant of the
polynomial method which was first used to prove th
at sets avoiding 3-term arithmetic progressions in
groups like Z_4^n^ and F_q^n^ are exponentially s
mall (compared to the size of the group). Since th
en many interesting applications of this method we
re shown\, for instance\, the solution of the Erdő
s-Szemerédi sunflower conjecture\, tight bound for
Green’s arithmetic triangle removal lemma and gro
wth rate of tri-colored sumfree sets. Finally\, I
will also mention some open problems.\n
