Counting joints in vector spaces over arbitrary fields

Anthony Carbery, Marina Iliopoulou

Research output: Working paper

Abstract / Description of output

We give a proof of the "folklore" theorem that the Kaplan--Sharir--Shustin/Quilodr\'an result on counting joints associated to a family of lines holds in vector spaces over arbitrary fields, not just the reals. We also discuss a distributional estimate on the multiplicities of the joints in the case that the family of lines is sufficiently generic.
