We find a large number of "geometric separator theorems" such as: I: Given N disjoint isooriented squares in the plane, there exists a rectangle with /spl les/2N/3 squares inside, /spl les/2N/3 squares outside, and /spl les/(4+0(1))/spl radic/N partly in & out. II: There exists a rectangle that is crossed by the minimal spanning tree of N sites in the plane at /spl les/(4/spl middot/3/sup 1/4/+0(1))/spl radic/N points, having /spl les/2N/3 sites inside and outside. These theorems yield a large… Expand
