abstract:A sequence (ai) of integers is well-spread if the sums ai+aj, for i<j, are all different. For a fixed positive integer r, let Wr(N) denote the maximum integer n for which there exists a well-spread sequence 0≤ a1<…<an≤ N with ai≡ aj(b mod r) for all i, j. We give a new proof that Wr(N)<(N/r)1/2+O((N/r)1/4); our approach improves a bound of Ruzsa [Acta.Arith. 65 (1993), 259--283] by decreasing the implicit constant, essentially from 4 to 3. We apply this result to verify a conjecture of Jones et al. from [Discuss. Math. Graph Theory 23 (2003), 287--307]. The application concerns the growth-rate of the maximum label Λ(n) in a `most-efficient' metric, injective edge-labelling of Kn with the property that every Hamilton cycle has the same length; we prove that 2n2-O(n3/2)<Λ(n)<2n2+O(n61/40).

The first source gives you the `gzipped' PostScript, the second the plain PostScript and the third the format for the Adobe accrobat reader. Depending on the installation of your web browser, at least one of these should (after some amount of time) pop up a window for you that shows the full article. If this is not the case, you should contact your system administrator to install your browser correctly.

Due to limitations of your local software, the two formats may show up differently on your screen. If eg you use xpdf to visualize pdf, some of the graphics in the file may not come across. On the other hand, pdf has a capacity of giving links to sections, bibliography and external references that will not appear with PostScript.
