As stated the question is a little vague but let me give some very early answers:
So we have some quite old answers; although the first answer is straightforward to prove the second is quite hard. There has been a lot of activity on these problems in recent years and in this lecture I would like to touch on what, I think, are some of the more interesting. Here is one result I will mention.
In this talk both the background to the result and some interesting open questions that arise will be discussed. This will be based on the survey recently written jointly with Rachel Camina.
