DESCRIPTION:The sum-product conjecture\, put forward by Erdős
and Szemerédi in the 1980s\, states that the set o
f all pairwise sums and the set of all pairwise pr
oducts of a finite subset of the reals cannot simu
ltaneously be close to minimal in size. Despite th
e simplicity of its statement and a significant am
ount of research effort devoted to its resolution\
, the conjecture remains open to this day. In this
talk I will explain the motivation for the conjec
ture as well as some fascinating partial results.
