Title:Proofs from the Book
Seminar:PMASS Colloquium
Speaker:Sergei Tabachnikov, Penn State
The famous mathematician of the last century, Paul Erdos, often referred to "The Book" in which God keeps the most elegant proofs of mathematical theorems. So, he would say: "This is a proof from the Book", or "This is a correct proof, but not from the Book". In fact, a book called "Proofs from the Book" was written by M. Aigner and G. Ziegler, and this is one of the most popular mathematical books ever. In this talk, I shall present some proofs of great theorems from this book, and some other ones that, in my opinion, belong there.
