Let S be a set in some vector space. What’s the largest subset of S with no three collinear points? This simple question (for various choices of S) has led to some interesting mathematics touching on a diverse range of subjects from combinatorial number theory to algebraic geometry. I will discuss some of these topics from an elementary viewpoint.
