    • Abstract

       

      In this paper, we shall address three closely-related conjectures due to van Emde Boas, W D Gao and Kemnitz on zero-sum problems on Zp ⊗ Zp. We prove a number of results including a proof of the conjecture of Gao for the primep = 7 (Theorem 3.1). The conjecture of Kemnitz is also proved (Propositions 4.6, 4.9, 4.10) for many classes of sequences.
