Abstract : A pursuer L and an evader M, confined to a circular arena, move with speeds bounded by 1 and w > 1, respectively. The author shows that the following holds for some d*>0. Given any starting positon, L can get to within d* of M* in a finite time. Also there exist from getting with d* - epsilon of M. The fact that L can attain d* contrasts our results with Besicovitch's famous results for Rado's problems (the case W = 1). (Author)
