I will discuss the structure of a finite set A of integers such that A+A is large. I will give a counterexample to an "anti-Freiman" conjecture in additive combinatorics. Connections with harmonic analysis and error correcting codes will also be discussed. No background will be assumed. This is joint work with Allison Lewko.
