Let A be a sequence of rk terms which is made up of k distinct integers each appearing exactly r times in A . The sum of all terms of a subsequence of A is called a subsequence sum of A . For a nonnegative integer α ≤ rk , let Σ α ( A ) be the set of all subsequence sums of A that correspond to the subsequences of length α or more. When r = 1, we call the subsequence sums as subset sums and we write Σ α ( A ) for Σ α ( A ). In this article, using some simple combinatorial arguments, we… 



Inverse theorems for subset sums

Let A be a finite set of integers. For h > 1 , let S^ (A) denote the set of all sums of h distinct elements of A . Let S(A) denote the set of all nonempty sums of distinct elements of A . The direct

The Direct and Inverse Theorems on Integer Subsequence Sums Revisited

New proofs of existing direct and inverse theorems for S(r,A) are given using the direct and Reverse Theorems of Nathanson for S (A), the set of all nontrivial subsequence sums of the sequence A.

On the cardinality of subsequence sums

Let A = (a0,a1,…,ak−1)r = (a0,…,a0︸r0,a1,…,a1︸r1,…,ak−1,…,ak−1︸rk−1) be a finite sequence of integers, where a0 < a1 < ⋯ < ak−1 and r = (r0,r1,…,rk−1) with ri ≥ 1 for i = 0, 1,…,k − 1. A subsequence

A quadratic lower bound for subset sums

Let A be a finite nonempty subset of an additive abelian group G, and let \Sigma(A) denote the set of all group elements representable as a sum of some subset of A. We prove that |\Sigma(A)| >= |H| +

Asymptotically tight bounds on subset sums

For a subset A of a finite abelian group G we define Sigma(A)={sum_{a\in B}a:B\subset A}. In the case that Sigma(A) has trivial stabiliser, one may deduce that the size of Sigma(A) is at least
