Abstract: The equidistribution theorem of Weyl gives a sufficient and necessary condition for when a sequence equidistributes on the torus. What if we replace the torus with a higher-degree nilmanifold, such as Heisenberg nilmanifold? I will show how the equidistribution theory on nilmanifolds developed by Leibman, Green and Tao can be applied to the combinatorial problem of counting certain polynomial configurations in subsets of finite fields.
