Abstract: We find nontrivial estimates of the probability that a random -dimensional subspace of an -dimensional vector space over a finite field is of minimal weight. The conditions are in Theorem 1 and in Theorem 2. Some applications of the estimates for finding the asymptotic behavior of the above probability are given.
