The Erdös-Szekeres convexn-gon theorem states that for anyn≥3, there is a smallest integerf(n) such that any set of at leastf(n) points in the planeE2, no three collinear, contains the vertices of a convexn-gon. We consider three versions of this result as applied to convexly independent points and convex polytopes inEd>,d≥2.
