Given a set A &SUBE; Z/NZ we may form a Cayley sum graph G(A) on vertex set Z/ NZ by joining i to j if and only if i+ j &ISIN; A. We investigate the extent to which performing this construction with a random set A simulates the generation of a random graph, proving that the clique number of G(A) is almost surely O(log N). This shows that Cayley sum graphs can furnish good examples of Ramsey graphs. To prove this result we must study the specific structure of set addition on Z/ NZ. Indeed, we also show that the clique number of a random Cayley sum graph on &UGamma; =(Z/2Z)(n) is almost surely not O( log |&UGamma;|).
