Tiling a rectangle with weighted cells (min-max problem)
What precisely do you mean by "sparse"? A constant number of entries in each row and column? At most $m+n$ entries in total? Or why would the total number of entries not appear in the runtime? (And edit the problem rather than posting an answer) (And the upper bound $a,b<1$ seems to be irrelevant.) |

Vertices of a Polytope
Indeed, fullerenes are a good example. Almost all of the surface is a hexagonal lattice, and there you can simultaneously cut away vertices as long as their minimum distance is 2. Thus, you can cut away half of the vertices (almost; staying away from the pentagons). |

Is there a 3d equivalent of this picture?
1. It should be pointed out that the density does not increase indefinitely inside the "black spot" but there is some minimum distance (if the points were really generated as indicated in the text) 2. Would you tolerate, for example (in the planar example) occasional vertices with 5 or 7 incident triangles, or should it be "completely regular"? |

What is the expected value for this
The exponent would not change. For example, take random points in a circular disk. Fit a triangle in the disk. A constant fraction of the n points falls inside the triangle (w.h.p.), and thus you get at least $c′n^{1/3}$ points in convex position; similarly, an ellipse (affine image of a disk) fits into any triangle, showing the other direction of the inequality. Any two convex shapes are related like this (after affine transformation). |

I wonder how a matrix with positive entries can have trace 0? |

long enough interval of integers to solve a simultaneous congruence
@Noam. Clarification: I was not puzzled because I did not see that the product has "distinct" exponents, after expanding the product and before collecting terms with the same exponent. But why is this fact needed? |
