Publisher: New York Springer 2013Edition: 2nd ed.Description: xix, 563 p; xix, 607 p.ISBN: 9781461472575 (vol.1); 9781461472537 (vol.2).Subject(s): Erdos, Paul | Mathematics | Combinatorics | Geometry | Logic, Symbolic and mathematical | Number theory | StatisticsDDC classification: 510 | 510 Summary: New and extensively revised edition with approximately 100 pages of new material Contains new articles from prominent mathematicians such as Larry Guth, Alexander Razborov and Joel Spencer Includes new introductions to all the individual parts, with an update of scientific activity in the last 20 years The first book bringing together articles surveying the legacy of Paul Erdős in all fields of his activity Features Paul Erdős' influence in number theory, random structures and geometry, with the most general collection of recent surveys available This is the most comprehensive survey of the mathematical life of the legendary Paul Erdős (1913-1996), one of the most versatile and prolific mathematicians of our time. For the first time, all the main areas of Erdős' research are covered in a single project. Because of overwhelming response from the mathematical community, the project now occupies over 1000 pages, arranged into two volumes. These volumes contain both high level research articles as well as key articles that survey some of the cornerstones of Erdős' work, each written by a leading world specialist in the field. A special chapter "Early Days", rare photographs, and art related to Erdős complement this striking collection. A unique contribution is the bibliography on Erdős' publications: the most comprehensive ever published. This new edition, dedicated to the 100th anniversary of Paul Erdős' birth, contains updates on many of the articles from the two volumes of the first edition, several new articles from prominent mathematicians, a new introduction, more biographical information about Paul Erdős, and an updated list of publications.
