Study group on Roth's Theorem on 3 term arithmetic progressions

In Term 2 2017-18, we are running a study group on Roth's Theorem (1952-53), that any dense subset of the integers must contain a non-trivial 3 term arithmetic progression. The goal is to learn how to prove Roth's Theorem itself, and then to study some variants, for example the analogue in vector spaces over finite fields, and the recent results giving improved quantitative information about the permissible density.
