We consider the following combinatorial problem: given a set of n objects (for example, disks in the plane, triangles), and an integer L ≥ 1, what is the size of the smallest subset of these n objects that covers all points that are in at least L of the objects? This is the classic question about the size of an L/n-net for these objects. It is well known that for fairly general classes of geometric objects the size of an L/n-net is O(n/L log n/L). There are some instances where this general… CONTINUE READING
