How many 1's can there be in an n by n 0/1-matrix which avoids a
certain fixed 0/1-matrix? Such a problem is related to Zarankiewicz
problem in Extremal graph theory, and to Davenport-Schinzel theory
which plays a great role in discrete and computational geometry.

Furedi & Hajnal ('92) conjectured if a given 0/1-matrix is a
permutation matrix then the number of 1's is linear in n. Recently,
Marcus & Tardos proved the conjecture affirmative in a quite simple
way. In this talk, we are going to look at their proof, some
consequences, and open problems.
