How to place \$n\$ points inside the \$d\$-dimensional unit cube so every large axis-parallel box contains at least one point? We discuss the motivation as well as a partial solution to this problem. This is joint work with Ting-Wei Chao.
For the pre-seminar, I will provide a brief introduction to the general area of geometric discrepancy theory. I will describe the classic results on discrepancy of boxes and of convex sets.
