A proof of snevily’s conjecture

  • Bodan ArsovskiEmail author


We prove Snevily’s conjecture, which states that for any positive integer k and any two k-element subsets {a 1, …, a k } and {b 1, …, b k } of a finite abelian group of odd order there exists a permutation πS k such that all sums a i + b π(i) (i ∈ [1, k]) are pairwise distinct.
