**Sets of points with many halving lines**.

D. Eppstein.

Tech. Rep. 92-86, ICS, UCI, 1992.I used genetic algorithms to search for small configurations of points bisected by lines in many combinatorially distinct ways.

**Improved bounds for intersecting triangles and halving planes**.

D. Eppstein.

Tech. Rep. 91-60, ICS, UCI, 1991.

*J. Combinatorial Theory Ser. A*62: 176–182, 1993.Reduces the polylogarithmic term in an upper bound for the three-dimensional

*k*-set problem.A bug in the proof was corrected by Nivasch and Sharir.

D. Eppstein.

Tech. Rep. 95-11, ICS, UCI, 1995.

*27th ACM Symp. Theory of Computing,*Las Vegas, 1995, pp. 662–671.

*Disc. Comp. Geom.*20: 463–476, 1998.Considers graphs in which edge weights are linear functions of time. Shows nonlinear lower bounds on the number of different minimum spanning trees appearing over time by translation from geometric problem of lower envelopes of line segments. A matroid generalization has a better lower bound coming from many faces in line arrangements, and the uniform matroid problem is equivalent to the geometric
