Abstract
The SzemerédiTrotter theorem gives a sharp upper bound on the maximum number of incidences between any finite sets of points and lines living in the real plane; this has also been extended to the complex plane. We can also ask for such an incidence bound over arbitrary fields. I will talk about two results in this direction in work joint with Frank de Zeeuw. The study of incidence bounds over the reals has found many applications in additive combinatorics; in arbitrary fields this utility remains true, and I shall present some of these applications.
