On Small Dense Sets in Galois Planes

M. Giulietti


This paper deals with new infinite families of small dense sets in desarguesian projective planes $PG(2,q)$. A general construction of dense sets of size about $3q^{2/3}$ is presented. Better results are obtained for specific values of $q$. In several cases, an improvement on the best known upper bound on the size of the smallest dense set in $PG(2,q)$ is obtained.
