Resumen
We present the latest developments on the number of ( k)-sets and halving lines for (gen-
eralized) configurations of points; as well as the rectilinear and pseudolinear crossing numbers
of Kn. In particular, we define perfect generalized configurations on n points as those whose
number of ( k)-sets is exactly 3
ˇk+1
2
˘
for all k n/3. We conjecture that for each n there
is a perfect configuration attaining the maximum number of ( k)-sets and the pseudolinear
crossing number of Kn. We prove that for any k n/2 the number of ( k)-sets is at least
3
ˇk+1
