Let P denote the set of prime numbers and, for an appropriate function h, define a set Ph = {p ∈ P: ∃n∈ℕ p = ⌊h(n)⌋}. The aim of this paper is to show that every subset of Ph having positive relative upper density contains a nontrivial three-term arithmetic progression. In particular the set of Piatetski-Shapiro primes of fixed type 71/72 < γ < 1, i.e., {p ∈ P : ∃n∈ℕ p = ⌊n1/γ⌋} has this feature. We show this by proving the counterpart of the Bourgain-Green restriction theorem for the set Ph.
