Some combinatorial problems associated with the study of convex bodies

Several classical problems in geometric combinatorics, such as the Erdos distance problem, the Szemeredi-Trotter incidence theorem, and others, have found numerous applications in analysis and other areas. We shall describe some recent applications in the context of the analysis of convex sets in the plane and higher dimensions.
