ABSTRACT Green and Ruzsa recently proved that for any s a parts per thousand yen 2, any small squaring set A in a (multiplicative) abelian group, i.e., |A center dot A| < K|A|, has a Freiman smodel: it means that there exists a group G and a Freiman s-isomorphism from A into G such that |G| < f (s,K)|A|. In an unpublished note, Green proved that such a result does not necessarily hold in nonabelian groups if s a parts per thousand yen 64. The aim of this paper is improve Green's result by showing that it remains true under the weaker assumption s a parts per thousand yen 6.
