Abstract

Paul Erdős, the famous world-wandering mathematician, left behind an enormous legacy of unsolved problems, many of which are enticingly elementary in their statement. In this talk, we explore some of these problems and, sometimes, their solutions.

About the Kalman Fellowship

The Margaret and John Kalman Charitable Trust is generously providing $10,000 for the annual Kalman Visiting Fellowship. This Fellowship is named after John Kalman, who was a professor of Mathematics at the University of Auckland from 1964 to 1993, and a leading promoter of mathematics in New Zealand.

This colloquium will be followed by refreshments in the Level 4 Common Room.
