In 1996, Hisao Yoshihara introduced a new notion in algebraic geometry: a Galois point for a plane curve is a point from which the projection induces a Galois extension of function fields. Yoshihara has established various new approaches to algebraic geometry by using Galois point or generalized notions of it. It is an interesting problem to determine the distribution of Galois points for a given plane curve. In this paper, we survey recent results related to this problem.
