Review: Assume Martin's axiom and that the lines of the euclidean space Rn are decomposed into countably many classes L0,L1,.... Then there is a decomposition of Rn into classes S0,S1,... such that if \ell is a line from Li then \ell meets Si in at most 3 points. Several other results extend this and earlier theorems to the case when higher dimensional hyperplanes are considered in place of lines.
