The inverse conjecture for the Gowers norms for finite-dimensional vector spaces over a finite field asserts, roughly speaking, that a bounded function has large Gowers norm if and only if it correlates with a phase polynomial of degree at most , thus is a polynomial of degree at most . In this paper, we develop a variant of the Furstenberg correspondence principle which allows us to establish this conjecture in the large characteristic case from an ergodic theory counterpart, which was recently established by Bergelson, Tao and Ziegler. In low characteristic we obtain a partial result, in which the phase polynomial is allowed to be of some larger degree . The full inverse conjecture remains open in low characteristic; the counterexamples found so far in this setting can be avoided by a slight reformulation of the conjecture.
We show that the bilinear form is bounded on the Dirichlet space of holomorphic functions on the unit disk if and only if is a Carleson measure for the Dirichlet space. This is completely analogous to the results for boundedness of Hankel forms on the Hardy and Bergman spaces, but the proof is quite different, relying heavily on potential-theoretic constructions.
We show absence of energy levels repulsion for the eigenvalues of random Schrödinger operators in the continuum. We prove that, in the localization region at the bottom of the spectrum, the properly rescaled eigenvalues of a continuum Anderson Hamiltonian are distributed as a Poisson point process with intensity measure given by the density of states. In addition, we prove that in this localization region the eigenvalues are simple.
These results rely on a Minami estimate for continuum Anderson Hamiltonians. We also give a simple, transparent proof of Minami’s estimate for the (discrete) Anderson model.
By combining ideas of Lubinsky with some soft analysis, we prove that universality and clock behavior of zeros for orthogonal polynomials on the real line in the absolutely continuous spectral region is implied by convergence of for the diagonal CD kernel and boundedness of the analog associated to second kind polynomials. We then show that these hypotheses are always valid for ergodic Jacobi matrices with absolutely continuous spectrum and prove that the limit of is , where is the density of zeros and is the absolutely continuous weight of the spectral measure.
