(joint work with A. Forey and J. Fresán)
A subset of an abelian group such that the sum of two elements from that subset determine the summands is called a Sidon set. We will explain how algebraic curves embedded in their generalized jacobians are very often Sidon sets, and describe how some of these give new examples of interest for combinatorics. We will also explain the applications of Sidon sets in the computation of monodromy groups using Larsen's Alternative.
