N2 - In this paper, we study the linear structure of sets A ⊂ F n2 with doubling constant (A) < 2, where σ(A):=|A+A|/|A|. In particular, we show that A is contained in a small affine subspace. We also show that A can be covered by at most four shifts of some subspace V with |V| ≤ |A|. Finally, we classify all binary sets with small doubling constant.
