"Discrete mathematics, the study of finite structures, is one of the fastest-growing areas in mathematics. The wide applicability of its evolving techniques points to the rapidity with which the field is moving from its beginnings to its maturity, and reflects the ever-increasing interaction between discrete mathematics and computer science. This Series provides broad coverage of discrete mathematics and optimization, ranging over such fields as combinatorics, graph theory, enumeration, and the analysis of algorithms."--Book cover

Rudiments of Ramsey theory by Ronald L Graham( Book )

35 editions published between 1980 and 2015 in English and Russian and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In every sufficiently large structure which has been partitioned there will always be some well-behaved structure in one of the parts. This takes many forms. For example, colorings of the integers by finitely many colors must have long monochromatic arithmetic progressions (van der Waerden's theorem); and colorings of the edges of large graphs must have monochromatic subgraphs of a specified type (Ramsey's theorem). This book explores many of the basic results and variations of this theory. Since the first edition of this book there have been many advances in this field. In the second edition the authors update the exposition to reflect the current state of the art. They also include many pointers to modern results

The mathematics of Paul Erdös by Ronald L Graham( Book )

30 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the most comprehensive survey of the mathematical life of the legendary Paul Erdős (1913-1996), one of the most versatile and prolific mathematicians of our time. For the first time, all the main areas of Erdős' research are covered in a single project. Because of overwhelming response from the mathematical community, the project now occupies over 1000 pages, arranged into two volumes. These volumes contain both high level research articles as well as key articles that survey some of the cornerstones of Erdős' work, each written by a leading world specialist in the field. A special chapter "Early Days", rare photographs, and art related to Erdős complement this striking collection. A unique contribution is the bibliography on Erdős' publications: the most comprehensive ever published. This new edition, dedicated to the 100th anniversary of Paul Erdős' birth, contains updates on many of the articles from the two volumes of the first edition, several new articles from prominent mathematicians, a new introduction, more biographical information about Paul Erdős, and an updated list of publications. The first volume contains the unique chapter "Early Days", which features personal memories of Paul Erdős by a number of his colleagues. The other three chapters cover number theory, random methods, and geometry. All of these chapters are essentially updated, most notably the geometry chapter that covers the recent solution of the problem on the number of distinct distances in finite planar sets, which was the most popular of Erdős' favorite geometry problems

17 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discrete mathematics stands among the leading disciplines of mathematics and theoretical computer science. This is due primarily to its increasing role in university curricula and its growing importance in applications ranging from optimization to molecular biology. An inaugural conference was held cooperatively by DIMATIA and DIMACS to focus on the versatility, width, and depth of current progress in the subject area. This volume offers a well-balanced blend of research and survey papers reflecting the exciting, attractive topics in contemporary discrete mathematics. Discussed in the book are
N is a number : a portrait of Paul Erdos( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A man with no home and no job, Paul Erdos was the most prolific mathematician who ever lived. Born in Hungary in 1913, Erdos wrote and co-authored over 1,500 papers and pioneered several fields in theoretical mathematics. At the age of 83 he still spent most of his time on the road, going from math meeting to math meeting, continually working on problems. He died on September 20, 1996 while attending such a meeting in Warsaw, Poland. N is a number: a portrait of Paul Erdos was filmed between 1988 and 1991. The film opens at Cambridge University's 1991 honorary doctorate ceremony, where Erdos received an award he says he would gladly trade for a "nice new proof." For Erdos, the meaning of life is "to prove and conjecture. "In an age dominated by technical wizardry and high tech communications, Erdos was an unusual human link connecting hundreds of people. As he traveled from country to country, Erdos carried with him the latest in mathematical thinking, inspiring others to develop new ideas and, sometimes, entire new fields. In turn, the mathematical community supported this repository of centuries of mathematical knowledge and lore. Every mathematician in the world has an "Erdos Number"-the number of people he or she is removed from having co-authored a paper with Erdos. To pursue this life of wandering and pure scholarship, Erdos relied on a network of other renowned mathematicians-all of whom regarded him as an international treasure. Wherever he touched down, whether in Hungary, Australia or Kalamazoo, Erdos immediately began working on problems with his colleagues. They, in turn, took care of his everyday needs. Ronald Graham, director of the Mathematical Sciences Research Center at ATandT Laboratories, keeps an "Erdos Room" at his home in New Jersey. From here, Graham managed Erdos's financial affairs and coordinated his travels and lectures, trying to maintain a semblance of order in the life of a man who kept no bank accounts and gave money to anyone he felt needed it. In Cambridge, England, Bela Bollobas, an ex-Erdos student, provided another oasis. As the film progresses it becomes clear that mathematicians around the world had more than a professional stake in caring for Erdos. In different ways, each of the many prominent mathematicians in the film expresses dedication to and love for Erdos. The structure of N is a Number is based on Erdos's 50 years of perpetual wandering, "like a bumblebee," carrying news and mathematical information from university to university. Erdos established himself as a serious mathematician at the age of 20 when he devised a more elegant proof for Chebyshev's theorem, i. e. , that there is always a prime number between any number and its double. He was at the center of an informal clique of gifted young mathematicians in Hungary, known as the Anonymous Group, because they would meet in a Budapest park under the statue of a medieval historian named Anonymous

Magical mathematics : the mathematical ideas that animate great magic tricks by Persi Diaconis( Book )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Magical Mathematics reveals the secrets of amazing, fun-to-perform card tricks--and the profound mathematical ideas behind them--that will astound even the most accomplished magician. Persi Diaconis and Ron Graham provide easy, step-by-step instructions for each trick, explaining how to set up the effect and offering tips on what to say and do while performing it. Each card trick introduces a new mathematical idea, and varying the tricks in turn takes readers to the very threshold of today's mathematical knowledge. For example, the Gilbreath principle--a fantastic effect where the cards remain in control despite being shuffled--is found to share an intimate connection with the Mandelbrot set. Other card tricks link to the mathematical secrets of combinatorics, graph theory, number theory, topology, the Riemann hypothesis, and even Fermat's last theorem. Diaconis and Graham are mathematicians as well as skilled performers with decades of professional experience between them. In this book they share a wealth of conjuring lore, including some closely guarded secrets of legendary magicians. Magical Mathematics covers the mathematics of juggling and shows how the I Ching connects to the history of probability and magic tricks both old and new. It tells the stories--and reveals the best tricks--of the eccentric and brilliant inventors of mathematical magic. Magical Mathematics exposes old gambling secrets through the mathematics of shuffling cards, explains the classic street-gambling scam of three-card monte, traces the history of mathematical magic back to the thirteenth century and the oldest mathematical trick--and much more"--
