This book discusses a famous problem that helped to define the
field now known as topology: What is the minimum number of colors
required to print a map so that no two adjoining countries have the
same color? This problem remained unsolved until the 1950s, when it
was finally cracked using a computer. This book discusses the
history and mathematics of the problem, as well as the
philosophical debate which ensued, regarding the validity of
computer generated proofs.
