👓 The Improbable Life of Paul ErdĹ‘s | New York Times

Read The Improbable Life of Paul Erdős by Gary Antonic (New York Times)
This week we celebrate the life of the most published mathematician in history, Paul ErdĹ‘s (AIR-dosh), who was born 100 years ago on March 26. Dr. ErdĹ‘s, who has been called the world’s greatest problem poser and solver, collaborated with over 500 mathematicians before his death in 1996.

“There are still a lot of ErdĹ‘s’s vibrations going around,” says Ronald L. Graham, professor of computer science and engineering at the University of California, San Diego, and longtime ErdĹ‘s friend and collaborator. “His impact will be felt for a long time.”
