This course will be a gentle introduction to some of the technical tools
that underlie recent approaches to Szemeredi's Theorem in additive
combinatorics and associated questions about multiple averages in ergodic
theory.

We will begin with a synopsis of Furstenberg's work relating Szemeredi's
Theorem to the ergodic theoretic phenomenon of multiple recurrence, and
with some of the technical background needed for this connection to bear
fruit.

We will then quickly sketch Gowers' approach to Szemeredi's Theorem, which
