In the spirit of the Erdős-Szemerédi sum-product conjecture, it is widely believed that sets defined by a combination of additive and multiplicative operations on a finite set A are significantly larger in size than the original set. One of the first questions of this type that arises concerns the size of the set AA+A. This talk will discuss some new bounds for this problem.
