Synopses & Reviews
The areas represented in this collection range from set theory and geometry through graph theory, group theory and combinatorial probability, to randomized algorithms and statistical physics. Erdös himself was able to give a survey of recent progress made on his favorite problems. Consequently this volume, comprised of in-depth studies at the frontier of research, provides a valuable panorama across the breadth of combinatorics as it is today.

Synopsis
Paul Erdös was one of the greatest mathematicians of this century, known the world over for his brilliant ideas and stimulating questions. Many leading combinatorialists contributed articles to celebrate his 80th birthday, and they are collected here. Erdös himself was able to give a survey of recent progress made on his favourite problems. Consequently this volume, consisting of in-depth studies, provides a valuable panorama across the breadth of combinatorics as it is today.
