Proseminar (engl.)

Proofs from the BOOK

"Paul Erdős liked to talk about The Book, in which God maintains the perfect proofs for mathematical theorems, following the dictum of G. H. Hardy that there is no permanent place for ugly mathematics. Erdős also said that you need not believe in God but, as a mathematician, you should believe in The Book..." Aigner, Ziegler: Proofs from the BOOK.

Martin Aigner and Günter Ziegler published a book "Proofs from the BOOK" with candidates of such perfect proofs that contain brilliant ideas, clever insights, and wonderful observations. Many topics were suggested by Erdős himself, though he died before the book was written. The collection of problems spans number theory, geometry, analysis, combinatorics, and graph theory.

This seminar deals with a selection of topics from "Proofs from the BOOK". The presentations will be held in the end of the semester in one (or two) full-day colloquium. The kick-off meeting is on November 1, 9:00 am, in S410|142.

Literature: Aigner, Martin; Ziegler, Günter (2009). Proofs from THE BOOK (4th ed.). Berlin, New York: Springer-Verlag.
