|distributed.net Faq-O-Matic : Project: OGR (Optimal Golomb Rulers) : What would solving OGR actually be good for?|
|OGR's have many applications including sensor placements for X-ray crystallography and radio astronomy. Golomb rulers can also play a significant role in combinatorics, coding theory and communications. Dr. Golomb was one of the first to analyze them for use in these areas.
|http://www.research.ibm.com/people/s/shearer/grbib.html#grapp lists some papers that show how Golomb rulers can be useful in the fields of information theory and communications.
