abstract = {Let G be a compact abelian group with dual group Γ and let ε > 0. A set E ⊂ Γ is a “weak ε-Kronecker set” if for every φ:E → there exists x in the dual of Γ such that |φ(γ)- γ(x)| ≤ ε for all γ ∈ E. When ε < √2, every bounded function on E is known to be the restriction of a Fourier-Stieltjes transform of a discrete measure. (Such sets are called I₀.)
We show that for every infinite set E there exists a weak 1-Kronecker subset F, of the same cardinality as E, provided there are not “too many” elements of order 2 in the subgroup generated by E. When there are “too many” elements of order 2, we show that there exists a subset F, of the same cardinality as E, on which every -1,1-valued function can be interpolated exactly. Such sets are also I₀. In both cases, the set F also has the property that the only continuous character at which $F·F^\{-1\}$ can cluster in the Bohr topology is 1. This improves upon previous results concerning the existence of I₀ subsets of a given E.},

AB - Let G be a compact abelian group with dual group Γ and let ε > 0. A set E ⊂ Γ is a “weak ε-Kronecker set” if for every φ:E → there exists x in the dual of Γ such that |φ(γ)- γ(x)| ≤ ε for all γ ∈ E. When ε < √2, every bounded function on E is known to be the restriction of a Fourier-Stieltjes transform of a discrete measure. (Such sets are called I₀.)
We show that for every infinite set E there exists a weak 1-Kronecker subset F, of the same cardinality as E, provided there are not “too many” elements of order 2 in the subgroup generated by E. When there are “too many” elements of order 2, we show that there exists a subset F, of the same cardinality as E, on which every -1,1-valued function can be interpolated exactly. Such sets are also I₀. In both cases, the set F also has the property that the only continuous character at which $F·F^{-1}$ can cluster in the Bohr topology is 1. This improves upon previous results concerning the existence of I₀ subsets of a given E.
