A $t \pmod{p}$ result on weighted multiple $(n-k)$-blocking sets in $\mathsf{PG}(n,q)$

In this article, we prove a t(modp) result for minimal weighted t-fold (nk)-blocking sets in PG(n,q), q = ph, p prime, h 1, n 2. Such a theorem plays a crucial role in characterizing minimal weighted t-fold (nk)-blocking sets. Our result is based on generalizations of earlier theorems on blocking sets in PG(2,q) to weighted blocking sets of higher dimensions.
