Tóthb Submitted Jul 31 2009 Accepted Oct 13 2010 Published Oct 29 2010 Mathematics Subject Classification 52C35 52A10 Abstract Recently Eisenbrand Pach Rothvofi and Sopher studied the function M m n which is the largest cardinality of a convexly independent subset of the Minkowski sum of some planar point sets P and Q with P m and Q n. They proved that M m n O m2 3n2 3 m n and asked whether a superlinear lower bound exists for M n n . In this note we show that their upper bound is the best possible apart from constant factors. 1 Introduction Recently Eisenbrand Pach Rothvob and Sopher 1 studied the function M m n which is the largest cardinality of a convexly independent subset of the Minkowski sum of some planar point sets P and Q with P m and Q n. They proved that M m n Preliminary versions of our results have been presented at the Czech-Slovakian Student Competition in Mathematics and Computer Science Kosice May 27-29 2009 and at the 7th Japan Conference on Computational Geometry and Graphs Kanazawa November 11-13 2009 . A part of the work has been done at the 12th Korean Workshop on Computational Geometry June 2009 and at the 7th Gremo Workshop on Open Problems July 2009.
