Abstract: A subset $ E$ of an infinite discrete group $ G$ is called (i) an $ {R_W}$-set if any bounded function on $ G$ supported by $ E$ is weakly almost periodic, (ii) a weak $ p$-Sidon set $ (1 \leq p < 2)$ if on $ {l^1}(E)$ the $ {l^p}$-norm is bounded by a constant times the maximal $ {C^*}$-norm of $ {l^1}(G)$, (iii) a $ T$-set if $ xE \cap E$ and $ Ex \cap E$ are finite whenever $ x \ne e$, and (iv) an $ FT$-set if it is a finite union of $ T$-sets. In this paper, we study relationships among these four classes of thin sets. We show, among other results, that (a) every infinite group $ G$ contains an $ {R_W}$-set which is not an $ FT$-set; (b) countable weak $ p$-Sidon sets, $ 1 \leq p < 4/3$ are $ FT$-sets.
