Hello. I have the following drawing (it is just a part of a bigger figure...) In[125]:= surface = Graphics[{Thickness[0.0079], Line[{{-3.1, 0}, {3, 0}}]}]; halfcir = Graphics[{Thickness[0.0079], Circle[{0, 0}, 0.6, {Pi, 2*Pi}]}]; randpoints = Table[Graphics[{PointSize[0.012], Point[{Random[Real, {-0.42, 0.42}], Random[Real, {-0.01, -0.47}]}]}], {300}]; Show[surface, halfcir, randpoints, AspectRatio -> Automatic]; How can I add as much points as possible inside the half-circle (so that there are not so big white regions as in the previous drawing) assuring that they are not situated outside it? I think something has to be modified for randpoints above in order to be included a rule but currently I can't think sth. Thanks Dimitris
