The mathematical coloring book mathematics of coloring and the colorful life of its creators by Alexander Soifer ( )
18 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 776 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Focuses on problems involving colored objects, and results about the existence of certain exciting and unexpected properties that occur regardless of how these objects are colored. This book also addresses famous and exciting problems of Ramsey Theory, along with the history surrounding the discovery of Ramsey Theory
Mathematics as problem solving by Alexander Soifer ( )
20 editions published between 1987 and 2009 in English and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How does one cut a triangle? by Alexander Soifer ( )
19 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Geometric etudes in combinatorial mathematics by Alexander Soifer ( )
17 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ramsey theory yesterday, today, and tomorrow by Alexander Soifer ( )
14 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book explores the theory's history, recent developments, and some promising future directions through invited surveys written by prominent researchers in the field. The first three surveys provide historical background on the subject; the last three address Euclidean Ramsey theory and related coloring problems. In addition, open problems posed throughout the volume and in the concluding open problem chapter will appeal to graduate students and mathematicians alike

Ramsey theory : yesterday, today, and tomorrow ; [the workshop took place on May 27-29, 2009 at the Busch Campus of Rutgers University in Piscataway, New Jersey] ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ramsey theory is a relatively new, approximately 100 year-old direction of fascinating mathematical thought that touches on many classic fields of mathematics such as combinatorics, number theory, geometry, ergodic theory, topology, combinatorial geometry, set theory, and measure theory. Ramsey theory possesses its own unifying ideas, and some of its results are among the most beautiful theorems of mathematics. The underlying theme of Ramsey theory can be formulated as: any finite coloring of a large enough system contains a monochromatic subsystem of higher degree of organization than the system itself, or as T.S. Motzkin famously put it, absolute disorder is impossible. Ramsey Theory: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow explores the theory s history, recent developments, and some promising future directions through invited surveys written by prominent researchers in the field. The first three surveys provide historical background on the subject, the last three address Euclidean Ramsey theory and related coloring problems. In addition, open problems posed throughout the volume and in the concluding open problem chapter will appeal to graduate students and mathematicians alike
