The Kakeya needle problem for rectifiable sets

Monday, February 6, 2017 -
3:00pm to 4:30pm
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.
