Abstract: In a forthcoming paper with Marci Habliscek, we constructed a Kakeya set over the formal power series ring '''F'''<sub>''q''</sub><nowiki>[[</nowiki>''t''&thinsp;<nowiki>]]</nowiki>, answering a question posed by Ellenberg, Oberlin, and Tao. My talk will be devoted to explaining some of the older history of the Kakeya problem in analysis and the newer history of the Kakeya problem in combinatorics, including my joint work with Marci. In particular, I will give Dvir's solution of the Kakeya problem over finite fields, and explain the problem's extension to other classes of rings.

Evan Dummit (Madison)
Title: Kakeya sets over non-archimedean local rings

Abstract: In a forthcoming paper with Marci Habliscek, we constructed a Kakeya set over the formal power series ring Fq[[t ]], answering a question posed by Ellenberg, Oberlin, and Tao. My talk will be devoted to explaining some of the older history of the Kakeya problem in analysis and the newer history of the Kakeya problem in combinatorics, including my joint work with Marci. In particular, I will give Dvir's solution of the Kakeya problem over finite fields, and explain the problem's extension to other classes of rings.
