Der Verlag über das Buch
About an unusual, productive and influential mathematician!
This book is a tribute to Paul Erdos, the wandering mathematician once described as "the prince of problem solvers and the absolute monarch of problem posers." It examines - within the context of his unique personality and lifestyle - the legacy of open problems he left to the world of mathematics after his death in 1996. Unwilling to succumb to the temptations of money and position, Erdos never had a home and never held a job. His "home" was a bag or two containing all his belongings and a record of the collective activities of the mathematical community. His "job" was one at which he excelled: identifying a fundamental roadblock in some particular line of research and capturing it in a well-chosen (often innocent-looking) problem, whose solution would likewise provide insight into the underlying theory. By cataloguing the unsolved problems of Erdos in a comprehensive and well documented volume, the authors hope to continue the work of an unusual and special man who fundamentally influenced the field of mathematics.

It is amazingly bad.
It is a book on graphs without one graph diagram
or graph matrix.
I buy these books for learning.
I'm left with not being able to give an honest review
because it would be politically suicide in Mathematics to
cross Ron Graham who has been president of both Mathematics societies.
The book is a very badly written one, too,
with a few mostly ancient ( from as far back as the 1930's )
problems in graph theory.
I have to go to MathWorld to get an idea of what the graphs might look like!
Since it appears that the graphs are the dog that wags the matrices,
I thought I might get further with some better understanding.
It appears this book is the wrong place to get it.
One reason as I see it that Fan Chung and Ron Graham
don't answer emails much is that they really aren't all that nice, good or smart:
their "meal ticket" was Erdos and he is dead now.
That's not a "pretty" conclusion or one I wanted, you know?
Tattle tale stories about the great man aren't going to save this one.
Even for me this may take years to get my money's worth out of.
I looked at the review by Charles Ashbacher and I had to set the record straight.
He is a friend of a friend who is also into integer sequences.
Somebody has to be honest here.
