Distances in colourings of the plane

(Cambridge University)
Abstract

We prove that every finite colouring of the plane contains a monochromatic pair of points at an odd (integral) distance from each other. We will also discuss some further results with Rose McCarty and Michal Pilipczuk concerning prime and polynomial distances.
