comment polynomial over finite field, roots forming additive subgroup
The motivation by the way is proving a property of certain point sets in projective geometry over finite fields. A proof of this (even just the {0,w1,...,wt} part) can be completed by me to a good research article (web of science level). I will gladly offer coauthorship to whoever provides me with a proof.

comment polynomial over finite field, roots forming additive subgroup
The $\{w_i | 1\le i\le t-1\}$ are a fixed set for which a polynomial $f$ with said properties exist. If it helps, it can be derived from the above properties that when writing $f(z)=\sum_{i=0}^{q-1} a_i z^i$ then $a_1=\sum_{i=1}^{t-1} w_i^{-1}$ and that $a_{2s+1}=0$ for all $s\ge 1$, and also that $a_{q-2}=0$.

I updated the problem statement even more. These $q/t+1$ sets all appear to be cosets of additive subgroups of size $t$ of $\mathbb{F}_q$.

You are right, I have probably cut out too much of the original problem. I have updated it to the full problem statement now.

comment Number of vector and affine subspaces of dimension $ k$ of $E$ over $\mathbb{F_q}$
I don't see what you want to prove... is $\mathcal E$ not equal to $(\mathbb{F}_q)^n$?

Thanks! That second link seems to give an error though: Forbidden You don't have permission to access /~mec/Summer2009/meerkamp/Site/Solving_any_Sudoku_II.html on this server.

comment Complement of all-one vector in binary vector space
No, you are right, this doesn't work for every code. It luckily worked for this one, since it turns out that the only way to form the all-one vector from these minimum-weight code words is by summing up an odd number of them. Not exactly generally applicable thus. But more such possibilities are welcomed!
