Decoupling and discrete restriction inequalities have been very fruitful in recent years to solve problems in additive combinatorics and analytic number theory. In this talk I will present some work in decoupling for Cantor sets, including Cantor sets on a parabola, decoupling for product sets, and give applications of these results to additive combinatorics.

Decoupling estimates aim to study the “amount of cancellation” that can occur when we add up functions whose Fourier transforms are supported in different regions of space. In this talk I will describe decoupling estimates for a Cantor set supported in the parabola.

he sensitivity theorem (former sensitivity conjecture) relates multiple ways to quantify the complexity, or lack of “smoothness”, of a boolean function f:{0,1}^n -> f : The minimum degree of a polynomial p(x):R^n -> R that extends f, the sensitivity s(f), and the block sensitivity bs(f).

Multiple results in harmonic analysis involving integrals of functions over curves (such as restriction theorems, convolution estimates, maximal function estimates or decoupling estimates) depend strongly on the non-vanishing of the torsion of the associated curve.
