**Abstract:** Junxian Li and I showed that a set with distinct consecutive r-differences has large sumset. During this talk I will explain how we used de Bruijn sequences to demonstrate that the bound we obtained is tight. If time permits, I’ll talk about a related generalization of Steinhaus’ 3 gap theorem. For more info, check out my math blog: gshakan.wordpress.com
