General position subsets ★★

Author(s): Gowers

Question   What is the least integer $ f(n) $ such that every set of at least $ f(n) $ points in the plane contains $ n $ collinear points or a subset of $ n $ points in general position (no three collinear)?

Keywords: general position subset, no-three-in-line problem

Colouring $d$-degenerate graphs with large girth ★★

Author(s): Wood

Question   Does there exist a $ d $-degenerate graph with chromatic number $ d + 1 $ and girth $ g $, for all $ d \geq 2 $ and $ g \geq 3 $?

Keywords: degenerate; girth
