Some expository/unpublished notes
In this extract from Product of simplices and sets of positive upper density in R^d we present a new direct proof of the fact that any subset of R^d with positive upper Banach
density necessarily contains an isometric copy of all sufficiently large dilates of any fixed non-degenerate k-dimensional simplex provided d is greater than or equal to k+1.   
2. Ramsey theory (Math 8440 course notes, Spring 2011)
