A celebrated theorem of Roth from 1953 shows that every dense set of integers contains a three-term arithmetic progression. This has been the starting point for the development of an enormous amount of beautiful mathematics. In this talk, I will discuss some shocking developments over the last few months on the bounds on some of the well-studied variants of Roth's theorem.
