PDL C-401 will discuss high-dimensional versions of the necklace splitting theorem of Goldberg and West, and later Alon.  Namely, \$r\$ thieves are given m measures in \$\mathbb{R}^d\$, and they seek to split \$\mathbb{R}^d\$ into few pieces to distribute those among themselves so that each thief has \$1/r\$ of each measure.  We will discuss different versions depending on conditions for the cuts and distributions.
