Problems and Results around the Erdös-Szekeres Convex Polygon Theorem


Eszter Klein’s theorem claims that among any 5 points in the plane, no three collinear, there is the vertex set of a convex quadrilateral. An application of Ramsey’s theorem then yields the classical Erdős–Szekeres theorem [19]: For every integer n ≥ 3 there is an N0 such that, among any set of N ≥ N0 points in general position in the plane, there is the… (More)
