The next MaPSS seminar will be held at 17:00 on Mon 23rd in Carslaw 535.
It’s a great opportunity to see an interesting talk, meet some fellow postgrads,
and get some free pizza and soft drink.

Title: On collinear triples formed by grids over finite fields

Abstract: We consider the problem of finding nontrivial upper bounds on the number 
of collinear triples formed by cartesian products of sets contained in finite fields of 
prime power cardinality. Aksoy Yazici, Murphy, Rudnev and Shkredov (2016) have 
obtained a strong estimate in prime fields, however their method does not extend to 
arbitrary finite fields. We conclude the talk with some number theoretic 
applications of our results.
