The Mathematics of Paul Erdos II (Algorithms and Combinatorics 14)

This can be the main entire survey of the mathematical lifetime of the mythical Paul Erd? s, some of the most flexible and prolific mathematicians of our time. For the 1st time, the entire major components of Erd? s' learn are lined in one venture. as a result of overwhelming reaction from the mathematical neighborhood, the undertaking now occupies over 900 pages, prepared into volumes.

Example text

If H is empty, the lemma is trivial. If H has no vertices, we can create two vertices by a 0 → 2 move. Encircle each vertex of H by a closed curve: this set of n curves intersects H at most 4n times and decomposes S into n blocks of the first type and a surface S whose Euler characteristic is χ(S) − n. If H = H ∩ S contains parallel edges, we apply O(n) 0 → 2-moves in order to replace each set of parallel edges by a single edge branching only in the neighborhood of ∂S . Then we add one curve per component of ∂S in order to enclose all these trivalent vertices in annular regions.
