We study several problems in discrete geometry and extremal combinatorics. Discrete geometry studies the combinatorial properties of finite sets of simple geometric objects. One theme of the field is geometric Ramsey theory. Given m geometric objects, we want to select a not too small subset forming a configuration that is “regular” in some sense.
