We prove several results concerning arithmetic progressions in sets of integers. Suppose, for example, that alpha and beta are positive reals, that N is a large prime and that C, D subset of or equal to Z/NZ have sizes gammaN and deltaN respectively. Then the sumset C + D contains an AP of length at least e(crootlog N), where c > 0 depends only on gamma and delta. In deriving these results we introduce the concept of hereditary non-uniformity (HNU) for subsets of Z/NZ, and prove a structural result for sets with this property.
