Abstract: We classify the compact, connected groups which have infinite central $ \Lambda (p)$ sets, arithmetically characterize central $ \Lambda (p)$ sets on certain product groups, and give examples of $ \Lambda (p)$ sets which are non-Sidon and have unbounded degree. These sets are intimately connected with Figà-Talamanca and Rider's examples of Sidon sets, and stem from the existence of families of tensor product representations of almost simple Lie groups whose decompositions into irreducibles are rank-independent.
