A set tiles the integers if and only if the integers can be written as a disjoint union of translates of that set. Counterexamples based on finite Abelian groups show that Fuglede conjecture is false in high dimensions. A solution for the Fuglede conjecture in Z or all the groups ZN would provide a solution for the Fuglede conjecture in R. Focusing on tiles in dimension one, we will concentrate on the analysis of tiles in the finite groups ZN. Based on the Coven- Meyerowitz conjecture, it has been proved that if any spectral set in Z satisfies the the Coven-Meyerowitz properties, then every spectral set in R is a tile. We will present some of the main results related to integer tiles and give a self-contained description of the theory with detailed proofs.
