OSORIO, Rigo Julián; RUIZ, Diego Fernando; TRUJILLO, Carlos Alberto and URBANO, Cristhian Leonardo. **Sonar Sequences and Sidon Sets**.* rev. cienc.* [online]. 2014, vol.18, n.1, pp.33-42.

A is a Sidon set in an additive commutative group G if the number of representations of each non-identity element in G, as a difference of two elements in A is at most 1. An m *x* n sonar sequence is a function f : {1, .. . , n} → {1, .. . , m} such that its associated graph G f := {(x, f (x)) : 1 ≤x ≤ n} is a Sidon set in the group Z *x* Z. If G(m) denotes the maximum positive integer such that there exists an m *x* n sonar sequence, using additive energy and some of its properties. In this paper, we show that G(m) ≤ m + 3,78m2/3 + 4,76m1/3 + 2. Furthermore, using the construction of Sidon sets type Bose in Zq2 -1 we construct (q - 1) *x* q sonar sequences for all prime power q
