By this term I mean, loosely, the study of the geometry of certain subsets of Euclidean space $\mathbb{E}^n$ from a point of view which is either the "classical" one (i.e. axiomatic), or one that involves more modern tools, but the problem in question has not to be "clearly" a problem within some other branch of maths such as differential or. The mathematician Terence Tao, of the University of California, Los Angeles, has presented a solution to an year-old number theory problem posed by the legendary Hungarian mathematician Paul Erdős. Erdős was famous for the thousands of puzzles he came up with, many of which have led to surprisingly deep mathematical discoveries. This particular problem, which came to .

The book is heavily problem oriented, following the authors' firm belief that most of the learning in mathematics is done by working through the exercises. Many of these problems are recently published results by mathematicians working in the area.

The conjecture. In what follows let g(n) denote the minimal number of distinct distances between n points in the plane, or equivalently the smallest possible cardinality of their distance his paper, Erdős proved the estimates − / − / ≤ ≤ / for some lower bound was given by an easy argument.

He was known both for his social practice of mathematics (he engaged more than collaborators) and for his eccentric lifestyle (Time magazine Born: 26 MarchBudapest, Austria-Hungary.

Providence, R.I.: American Mathematical. People in other sciences or even social sciences may also have small Erdös numbers. My brother (a physician with only one publication) has an Erdös number of at most 9. An author in the MathSciNet database, Mutt, is a computer with an Erdös number of 2.

We’ve even heard about a horse who claimed to have an Erdös number of 3. We study the Erdös–Falconer distance problem in vector spaces over finite fields with respect to the cubic metric.

Estimates for discrete Airy sums and Adolphson–Sperber estimates for exponential sums in terms of Newton polyhedra play a crucial by: Paul Erdös has been described as a "prince of problem solvers and the absolute monarch of problem posers." This is a testament to both his legacy of over publications and his numerous proposed problems, many of which are still open today.

Throughout his career, work on his proposed problems in a variety of areas of mathematics. Erdös was famous for having many collaborators ( at last count). This has given rise to the notion of an "Erdös number". All those mathematicians who co-authored a paper or book with Erdös are said to have Erdös number 1; those who have co-authored with someone of Erdös number 1 (but not with Erdös himself) have Erdös number 2; and so on.

Abstract. The Erdös unit distance conjecture in the plane says that the number of pairs of points from a point set of size n separated by a fixed (Euclidean) distance is \(\le C_{\varepsilon } n^{1+\varepsilon }\) for any \(\varepsilon >0\).The best known bound is \(Cn^{\frac{4}{3}}\).We show that if the set under consideration is homogeneous, or, more generally, s-adaptable in the sense of Author: Alex Iosevich.

Erdös was the consum-mate problem solver; his hallmark was the succinct and clever argument, often. The incidence estimate for lines in R 3 in [12] was motivated by the Erdős distinct distance problem in the plane.

The problem asks for the minimal number of distinct distances determined by N. The Erdös Number Project. This is the website for the Erdös Number Project, which studies research collaboration among mathematicians.

The site is maintained by Jerry Grossman at Oakland University. Patrick Ion, a retired editor at Mathematical Reviews, and Rodrigo De Castro at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Bogota provided assistance in the past.

We study the Erdos distance problem over finite Euclidean and non-Euclidean spaces. Our main tools are graphs associated to finite Euclidean and non-Euclidean spaces that are considered in Bannai Author: Le Anh Vinh.

To my count, the difference between the publication dates of the Sylvester () and Erdös () questions is closer to 50 than to 40, so perhaps the reason for the confusion is that Grünwald found and reported his solution to Erdös 10 years before the later decided to go out public with the problem.

There's a nice book by Garibaldi, Iosevich, and Senger, The Erdős Distance Problem, in the Student Mathematical Library series of the American Mathematical Society. Mostly it's about the problem in the plane, but there is some discussion of, and references to, work on higher dimensions.

It is written in very lively tone.
