This topic sounds interesting but I do not entirely understand it. How do know that the maximum is 20? (Intuition suggests that it is less.} Is there an example of a set with 20? Is it possible to find some helpful background in R2? Do you have any results for 4-point or 5-point sets?

Thank you (or anyone else) for some response. Your post has inspired me to investigate.
