Generalizations of the problem: A goat is tethered to the edge of a disc shaped field of radius \(r\). The goat's rope is of length \(kr\). If the field is \(n\)-dimensional, what fraction...

Generalization of the fact that \(n^2-n+2\) is the maximum number of disjoint regions in the plane that can be formed by \(n\) circles using the basic set operations

This article characterizes the points \((x, y)\) in the plane for which the determinant of a matrix of a particular form involving \((x, y)\) is \(0\).  The matrices of interest have the...
