On linear versions of some addition theorems. (English) Zbl 1263.11015
Summary: Let \(K \subset L\) be a field extension. Given \(K\)-subspaces \(A, B\) of \(L\), we study the subspace \(\langle AB\rangle \) spanned by the product set \(AB = \{ab\mid a \in A,\, b \in B\}\). We obtain some lower bounds on \(\dim_K\langle AB\rangle \) and \(\dim_K\langle B^n\rangle \) in terms of \(\dim_K A\), \(\dim_K B\) and \(n\). This is achieved by establishing linear versions of constructions and results in additive number theory mainly due to Kemperman and Olson.
