Cool Math You Never Learned in School: The Konigsberg Bridges, Graph Theory and the Four Color Problem
The city of Konigsberg was connected to Kneiphof Island though seven different bridges. Citizens would walk over a bridge to the Island and back and wonder if it was possible to do so without ever having to cross the same bridge twice. No matter how hard they tried, they could not do it. Prof. Gyan Bhanot from Rutgers University, Department of Physics will present a fascinating history of this mathematical problem starting from the research conducted by the famous mathematician Euler to more recent mathematical approaches involving graph theory.
