We collect some recent results that together provide an almost complete answer to the question stated in the title. For the dimension d = 2 the answer is three. For the dimensions d = 3 and d ≥ 5 the answer is four. For the dimension d = 4 the answer is either three or four. Curiously, the exact number in d = 4 seems to be an open problem

Abstract

We collect some recent results that together provide an almost complete answer to the question stated in the title. For the dimension d = 2 the answer is three. For the dimensions d = 3 and d ≥ 5 the answer is four. For the dimension d = 4 the answer is either three or four. Curiously, the exact number in d = 4 seems to be an open problem
