Recent developments on Falconer's distance set problem

Abstract: The Falconer Conjecture says that if $$E$$ is a compact set in $$\mathbb{R}^d$$ with Hausdorff dimension larger than $$d/2$$, then its distance set, consisting of all distinct distances generated by points in $$E$$, should have strictly positive Lebesgue measure. This conjecture remains open in all dimensions $$d \geq 2$$. In this talk we will discuss several recent developments on it, which are joint works with Xiumin Du, Larry Guth, Alex Iosevich, Hong Wang, Bobby Wilson, and Ruixiang Zhang.
