The finite field Kakeya problem

A. Blokhuis, F. Mazzocca

Research output: Book/ReportReportAcademic


A Besicovitch set in AG(n,q) is a set of points containing a line in every direction. The Kakeya problem is to determine the minimal size of such a set. We solve the Kakeya problem in the plane, and substantially improve the known bounds for n greater than 4.
