Description

Let $\psi: \mathbb{N} \to [0, 1/2]$ be given. Koukoulopoulos and Maynard (2020) proved the Duffin–Schaeffer conjecture: for almost all reals $\alpha$ there are infinitely many coprime solutions $(p,q)$ to the inequality $|\alpha−p/q| < \psi(q)/q$, if and only if the series $\sum_{q=1}^{\infty} \varphi(q)\psi(q)/q$ is divergent. In a recent joint work with Christoph Aistleitner and Bence Borda, we established a quantitative version of this result in the following sense: for almost all $\alpha$, the number of coprime solutions $(p, q)$, subject to $q \leq Q$, is of asymptotic order $\psi(Q) = \sum_{q=1}^Q 2\varphi(q)\psi(q)/q$. In this talk, I will give an overview of the original proof of Koukoulopoulos and Maynard and the additional ideas we used to obtain this quantification.
