This is the most comprehensive survey of the mathematical life of the legendary Paul Erdos , one of the most versatile and prolific mathematicians of our time. For the first time, all the main areas of Erdos' research are covered in a single project. Because of overwhelming response from the mathematical community, the project now occupies over 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 Erdos' work, each written by a leading world specialist in the field.

## The Mathematics of Paul Erdos I : Ronald L. Graham :

A special chapter "Early Days", rare photographs, and art related to Erdos complement this striking collection. A unique contribution is the bibliography on Erdos' publications: the most comprehensive ever published. This new edition, dedicated to the th anniversary of Paul Erdos' 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 Erdos, and an updated list of publications.

The first volume contains the unique chapter "Early Days", which features personal memories of Paul Erdos by a number of his colleagues. The other three chapters cover number theory, random methods, and geometry.

In his 83 years of life, he published over academic papers with more than collaborators, making him the most prolific mathematician in history, comparable only with Leonard Euler. His parents were both high school math teachers, which, in Hungary at the time required them to have Ph. Ds in mathematics.

His two older sisters died at ages 3 and 5 from scarlet fever a few days before he was born, and so he grew up an only child. By the time he was four, he could calculate in his head how many seconds a person had been alive Hoffman, Already at the age of 16, his father introduced him to infinite series and set theory , which would become lifelong obsessions for him.

Horthy enacted the first European antisemitic laws similar to those Hitler would introduce in Germany thirteen years later, including limiting the number of Jews that were permitted to study in Hungarian universities. In his dissertation he proved the existence of prime numbers between n and 2n in certain arithmetic progressions. Mordell , who arranged for him to receive a four-year fellowship there Babai, Already during this tenure, he travelled widely in the UK, meeting G.

His wanderlust was already in evidence. In the U. Believing strongly in the practice of mathematics as a social activity, most of his papers were written with co-authors.

## The Mathematical Nomad, Paul Erdős

His handwriting was abominable. Readable, but childlike. The conjecture was proved by Pafnuty Chebyshev — in A simpler proof using the properties of the Gamma function was later provided by Ramanujan in His proof considers the middle binomial coefficient:. These are dealt with by hand. For a narration of these cases, see Galvin From their brief encounter, an elementary proof of the Prime Number Theorem appeared Babai, Originally emerging as a consequence of the independent works of Legendre, Gauss and Dirichlet, the prime number theorem states:.

Selberg in March established that the asymptotic formula. Who of the two proved the result first became somewhat of a priority dispute Goldfeld, , leading the two to unfortunately never collaborate again. A typical example of a such a problem starts out with a mathematical structure such as a graph , which is then cut into pieces.

A subsequence is a sequence that can be derived from another sequence by deleting some of the elements without changing the order of the sequence. The most widely cited proof is likely that of Hammersley The first is that the elements of any column correspond to an increasing subsequence. The second is that the only time we shift to a later column is when we have an element that is smaller than one of its predecessors.

Thus, given k columns in the final construction, one can trace back from the last and find a monotone subsequence of length k. Points in general position in the plane are points which no three belong to a line.

The problem statement and theorem was one of the first influential results that eventually led to the development of Ramsey theory. The conjecture is known to hold for its known values of g 3 , g 4 , g 5 , g 6. They carried out a computer search which eliminated all possible configurations of 17 points without convex hexagons. Although he was never awarded the prestigious Fields Medal, he was awarded several other prestigious awards for his mathematical achievements.

In he was awarded the Cole Prize of the American Mathematical Society for his many papers on the theory of numbers, in particular for his paper On a new method in elementary number theory which leads to an elementary proof of the prime number theorem , published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in
