On the size of Kakeya sets in finite vector spaces. (English) Zbl 1295.11138
Summary: For a finite field \(\mathbb{F}_q\), a Kakeya set \(K\) is a subset of \(\mathbb{F}_q^n\) that contains a line in every direction. This paper derives new upper bounds on the minimum size of Kakeya sets when \(q\) is even.
