Mathematical Sciences Departmental Seminar

These Departmental Seminars are for everyone interested in Maths. We encourage anyone interested in the subject in general, or in the particular subject of the seminar, to come along. It's a great opportunity to meet people in the Maths Department and join in with our community. 

Refreshments are shared in the Department (STEM 5.1) after every seminar.

Sum-free sets in finite groups

Dr Chimere Anabanti

The notion of sum-free sets dates back to the days of Issai Schur who showed that whenever we partition the set of natural numbers into a finite number of parts, one of the parts contains three integers x, y and z such that x+y=z.

In this talk, we discuss some open questions on the study of sum-free sets in finite groups and some of their applications.


Dr Chimere Anabanti is a Lecturer in the Department of Mathematics, University of Nigeria, Nsukka.
