A nonlinear projection theorem for Assouad dimension and applications
MetadataShow full item record
We prove a general nonlinear projection theorem for Assouad dimension. This theorem has several applications including to distance sets, radial projections, and sum-product phenomena. In the setting of distance sets we are able to completely resolve the planar version of Falconer’s distance set problem for Assouad dimension, both dealing with the awkward ‘critical case’ and providing sharp estimates for sets with Assouad dimension less than 1. In the higher dimensional setting we connect the problem to the dimension of the set of exceptions in a related (orthogonal) projection theorem. We also obtain results on pinned distance sets and our results still hold when distances are taken with respect to a sufficiently curved norm. As another application we prove a radial projection theorem for Assouad dimension with sharp estimates on the Hausdorff dimension of the exceptional set.
