Pressestimmen

The simplicity of the four-color conjecture is deceptive. Just how deceptive is made clear by Robin Wilson's delightful history of the quest to resolve it. . . . "Four Colors Suffice" is strewn with good anecdotes, and the author . . . proves himself skillful at making the mathematics accessible.--Jim Holt "New York Review of Books "

Earlier books . . . relate some of the relevant history in their introductions, but they are primarily technical. In contrast, "Four Colors Suffice" is a blend of history anecdotes and mathematics. Mathematical arguments are presented in a clear, colloquial style, which flows gracefully.--Daniel S. Silver "American Scientist "

Robin Wilson appeals to the mathematical novice with an unassuming lucidity. It's thrilling to see great mathematicians fall for seductively simple proofs, then stumble on equally simple counter-examples. Or swallow their pride.--Jascha Hoffman "The Boston Globe "

A thoroughly accessible history of attempts to prove the four-color theorem. Wilson defines the problem and explains some of the methods used by those trying to solve it. His descriptions of the contributions made by dozens of dedicated, and often eccentric, mathematicians give a fascinating insight into how mathematics moves forward, and how approaches have changed over the past 50 years. . . . It's comforting to know that however indispensable computers become, there will always be a place for the delightfully eccentric mathematical mind. Let's hope that Robin Wilson continues to write about them.--Elizabeth Sourbut "New Scientist "

An attractive and well-written account of the solution of the Four Color Problem. . . . It tells in simple terms an exciting story. It . . . give[s] the reader a view into the world of mathematicians, their ideas and methods, discussions, competitions, and ways of collaboration. As such it is warmly recommended.--Bjarne Toft "Notices of the American Mathematical Society "

Wilson gives a clear account of the proof . . . enlivened by historical tales.--Alastair Rae "Physics World "

Wilson provides a lively narrative and good, easy-to-read arguments showing not only some of the victories but the defeats as well. . . . Even those with only a mild interest in coloring problems or graphs or topology will have fun reading this book. . . . [It is] entertaining, erudite and loaded with anecdotes.--G.L. Alexanderson "MAA Online "


"It is clear that the remarkable teaching experience of the author was a fundamental ingredient in the preparation of this work; one progresses didactically through the chapters, getting acquainted very progressively with increasingly complex ideas. It would be great to have more such exciting books for other famous cases in mathematics and related sciences."--D. de Werra, "Mathematical Reviews Clippings"

Buchrückseite

"I loved Robin Wilson's book on the four color problem, because it gives the history as well as the arguments. The history is presented so entertainingly, and the arguments so lucidly, that I'm sure the book will find a large audience, and delight any audience as much as it did me."--John Conway

"An intriguing historical account of one of the most baffling enigmas in mathematics: the Four Color Theorem. Robin Wilson provides fascinating insights into how mathematicians think, and shows that questions that are simple to ask may not be simple to answer."--Ian Stewart

"Robin Wilson has combined a complete history of the approach that led to the solution of the four color problem with a description of the techniques involved that can be read with pleasure and comprehension by undergraduates as well as professional mathematicians."--Kenneth Appel, University of New Hampshire
