Near equipartitions of colored point sets

Suppose that nk points in general position in the plane are colored red and blue, with at least n points of each color. We show that then there exist n pairwise disjoint convex sets, each of them containing k of the points, and each of them containing points of both colors. We also show that if P is a set of n(d + 1) points in general position in R-d colored by d colors with at least n points of each color, then there exist n pairwise disjoint d-dimensional simplices with vertices in P, each of them containing a point of every color. These results can be viewed as a step towards a common generalization of several previously known geometric partitioning results regarding colored point sets. (C) 2017 Elsevier B.V.
