Limits of functions on groups and higher order Fourier analysis

The recently developed graph limit theory is part of a bigger picture in which limits of axiomatizable structures are studied. We present new results about the case when the underlying structures are functions on groups. The corresponding limit theory is deeply connected to a theory called "higher order Fourier analysis" which was founded by Gowers to generalize Roth's approach to three term arithmetic progressions in integer sets.
