**Abstract:** An old conjecture in additive combinatorics asks: what is the largest sum-free subset of any set of N positive integers? Here the word "largest" should be understood in terms of cardinality. For example, the largest sum-free subset of the first N positive integers has cardinality [(N+1)/2], which is the number of odd integers smaller than N, as well as the number of integers that lie in the interval [N/2,N]. In this talk, I will discuss a special case of the sum-free conjecture and the analogous conjecture on (k,l)-sum-free sets. This is a joint work with Yifan Jing
