Although discrete geometry has a wealthy heritage extending greater than one hundred fifty years, it abounds in open difficulties that even a high-school pupil can comprehend and savor. a few of these difficulties are notoriously tough and are in detail regarding deep questions in different fields of arithmetic. yet many difficulties, even outdated ones, may be solved by way of a smart undergraduate or a high-school pupil built with an creative notion and the types of abilities utilized in a mathematical olympiad.

Research difficulties in Discrete Geometry is the results of a 25-year-old undertaking initiated by means of the past due Leo Moser. it's a number of greater than 500 appealing open difficulties within the box. The principally self-contained chapters offer a vast evaluation of discrete geometry, besides historic info and an important partial effects with regards to those difficulties. This booklet is meant as a resource e-book for either expert mathematicians and graduate scholars who love appealing mathematical questions, are keen to spend sleepless nights wondering them, and who want to become involved in mathematical study.

Important good points include:

* More than 500 open difficulties, a few previous, others new and not earlier than published;

* Each bankruptcy divided into self-contained sections, each one part finishing with an in depth bibliography;

* a very good collection of study difficulties for graduate scholars trying to find a dissertation topic;

* A finished survey of discrete geometry, highlighting the frontiers and way forward for research;

* More than one hundred twenty figures;

* A preface to an previous model written by way of the past due Paul Erdos.

Peter Brass is affiliate Professor of laptop technology on the urban collage of latest York. William O. J. Moser is Professor Emeritus at McGill collage. Janos Pach is wonderful Professor on the urban university of latest York, study Professor on the Courant Institute, NYU, and Senior examine Fellow on the Rényi Institute, Budapest.
