Ramsey’s theorem and Waring’s problem for algebras over fields. (English) Zbl 0817.12002

Summary: It is shown that for each integer $k\geq 1$ there is an integer $R(k)$ such that every element of every algebra $A$ over every finite field $F= kF$ is a sum of difference of $k$ $k$-th powers as well as the sum of $3k/2$ $k$-th powers provided that $\text{card} (F)\geq R(k)$. Moreover, the statement of sums or differences holds also for any infinite field $F= kF$ such that the subgroup of the $k$-th powers in the multiplicative group $F\sp*$ is of finite index. Another result is that in the polynomial ring $F[ T]$ is one variable $T$ over any field $F$, every sum of cubes is the sum of 4 cubes. This result is new in the case when $\text{card} (F) =2$. For the entire collection see [Zbl 0771.00031].
