CANCELLED: The Kakeya needle problem for rectifiable sets

Monday, December 5, 2016 -
3:00pm to 4:30pm
THIS SEMINAR HAS BEEN CANCELLED.  We show that the classical results about rotating a line segment in arbitrarily small area, and the existence of a Besicovitch and a Nikodym set hold if we replace the line segment by an arbitrary rectifiable set. This is a joint work with Alan Chang.
