Title:  Some combinational problems in geometry. (In English)

Review:  [For the entire collection see Zbl 418.00010.]
In this short survey, results and conjectures for lower and upper bounds are given for (1) f2(n): = maximum number of pairs xi, xj satisfying d(xi,xj) = 1 in a set {x1,...,xn} of distinct points in the euclidean plane; (2) H(n): = smallest integer such that every set of H(n) points in the plane, no three on a line, contains the vertices of a convex n-gon; (3) tk(n): = largest integer such that there is a set of n points in the plane for which there are tk(n) lines containing exactly k of the points; (4) a multitude of further geometrically defined integer functions.
