## Sidon sets

##### Abstract:

A Sidon set is a set of integers such that no difference of two distinct numbers in the set equals the difference of any other two numbers in the set. Constructions of large Sidon sets have interesting connections to geometry and number theory. I will show how to construct Sidon sets and discuss these connections.
