In the 21st Century, this method has become immersed in a turbulent mix of ideas on the interface of Diophantine equations and inequalities, arithmetic geometry, harmonic analysis and ergodic theory, and arithmetic combinatorics. Perhaps the most appropriate brief summary is therefore “arithmetic harmonic analysis”. Much of my work hitherto has focused on Waring’s problem (representing positive integers as sums of powers of positive ...
