The book “The Boy Who Loved Math” by Deborah Heiligman is a creative, adventurous story about the not so normal life of Paul Erdos.

This biography follows the life of Paul as he grows up with his mother, a math teacher. Paul and school do not get along very well since he cannot sit for long so he runs around the classroom all day/5.

Since his death inmany scientific meetings have been dedicated to the memory of Paul Erdös. From July 4 to 11,the conference "Paul Erdös and his Mathematics" was held in Budapest, with the ambitious goal of showing the whole range of Erdös' work - a difficult task in view of Erdös' versatility and his broad scope of interest in mathematics.

We wish to thank the nearly 70 contributors for their outstanding efforts (and their patience). In particular, we are grateful to Bela Bollobas for his extensive documentation of Paul Erdos' early years and mathematical high points (in the first part of this volume); our other authors are acknowledged in their respective chapters.

As well as his involvement with mathematics education, Gardiner has also made contributions to the areas of infinite groups, finite groups, graph theory, and algebraic combinatorics. In the yearhe received the Paul Erdös Award for his contributions to UK and international Mathematical Challenges and Olympiads.

Inwhen Paul Erdos was awarded a Doctor Honoris Causa by Charles University in Prague, a small conference was held, bringing together a distin­ guished group of researchers with interests spanning a variety of fields related to Erdos' own work.

Paul's father Lajos and his mother Anna had two daughters, aged three and five, who died of scarlet fever just days before Paul was born. This naturally had the effect making Lajos and Anna extremely protective of Paul.

He would be introduced to mathematics by his parents, themselves both teachers of mathematics. He was probably the most prolific mathematician ever; by the time of his death, his publication list (articles and books) totaled about Paul Erdös has been honored all over the world with memberships in national academies, honorary degrees, conferences and commemorative volumes dedicated to him, and several prizes, among them the.

Paul Erdoes and His Mathematics: Halasz, Gabor, Lovasz, Laszlo, Simonovits, Miklos, Sos, Vera T.: : BooksFormat: Hardcover. The best mathematician I met during my long career was a Hungarian named Paul Erdös. A member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, he was gentle, kind, generous.

He loved children whom he called epsilons, the Greek letter used to represent mathematically small quantities. He was a little strange.

His life was devoted exclusively to mathematics. Erdös first did mathematics at the age of three, but for the last twenty-five years of his life, since the death of his mother, he put in nineteen-hour days, keeping himself fortified with 10 to 20 milligrams of Benzedrine or Ritalin, strong espresso, and caffeine tablets.

Paul Erdös died on Septemat the age of eighty-three. The second most prodigious author of mathematical papers of all time, at his death he had written 1, academic research articles. The majority of those papers were co-authored with one or more others. ''The Man Who Loved Only Numbers'' is his expanded homage to the man and his discipline.

The article and its title are preserved in this book. Hoffman traveled some with Erdös and met his colleagues. He observed, but most important, he listened -- to Erdös talk about mathematics and himself, and to colleagues and friends talk about Erdös.

Review. Paul Erdös was an amazing and prolific mathematician whose life as a world-wandering numerical nomad was legendary. He published almost scholarly papers before his death inand he probably thought more about math problems than anyone in history.

Paul Erdos was a Hungarian born mathematician famous for his brilliantly elegant proofs of seemingly unsolvable mathematical problems, especially in the area of numbers theory.

He founded the field of discrete mathematics, the foundation of computer science, and was one of the most prolific mathematicians in : Since his death inmany scientific meetings have been dedicated to the memory of Paul ErdAs.

From July 4 to 11,the conference "Paul ErdAs and his Mathematics" was held in Budapest, with the ambitious goal of showing the whole range of ErdAs' work - a difficult task in view of ErdAs' versatility and his broad scope of interest in mathematics.

From the day he was born, Paul Erdös endured very difficult situations that would presumably make the average person go crazy.I met Paul ErdÃs shortly after his 40th birthday in April at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana.

He was already a living legend because of his substantial contributions to the theory of numbers, the theory of sets, what is now called discrete mathematics, as well as to many other areas of mathematics.
