Abstract: A subsequence of a sequence of integers is said to be sum-free if no integer of the subsequence is the sum of distinct integers of this same subsequence. In this paper we shall prove, provided is sufficiently large, that there exists a sequence of integers whose largest sum-free subsequence has at most integers, where is an absolute constant.
