### Is there a hyperplane avoiding two independent sets?

Let $V$ be a vector space over a field with $5$ elements, $A,B \subseteq V$ independent subsets. Must there be a subspace of $V$ of codimension 1 disjoint from $A \cup B$?

### Subplanes of Finite Projective Planes

If a finite projective plane $\pi_1$ of order $m$ contains, as a sub plane, a
finite projective plane $\pi_2$ of order $n$, then $m \geq n^2$ with equality holding only in the case of a Baer sub ...

### A question on hyperplanes in partial linear spaces and hypergraphs

A partial linear space (or a linear hypergraph) is a point line geometry $(P,L,I)$ where for every pair of points there is at most one line incident with both of them. A hyperplane in a partial linear ...

### Intersection of two trace equations over finite fields

Let $F_q$ be a finite field with $q$ elements. Let $n$ be an integer and $Tr:F_{q^n} \rightarrow F_q$ the trace function. My question is: For which integer $k$,
$$\{x: Tr(x)=0\}\cap\{x: ...

### Covering all, but $k$ points with affine subspaces

For non-negative integer $d\le n$ and $k\le 2^n$, how many affine subspaces of co-dimension $d$ are needed to cover all, but exactly $k$ elements of the vector space ${\mathbb F}_2^n$, and what are ...

### Vector spaces over a field of prime order with certain hyperplanes

Let $V$ be a vector space of finite dimentional $d$ over a field of prime order $p$.
For what values of $d$ and $p$, one can find $d+1$ (pairwise distinct) hyperplanes (subspaces of dimension $d-1$) ...
