'Ron Graham made important and lasting contributions to many areas of combinatorics, and this book is a celebration of his work. It contains a collection of very interesting papers written by the leading experts in discrete mathematics, covering such diverse topics as number theory, probability, graph theory, discrete geometry, and algebraic combinatorics.' Benjamin Sudakov, ETH, Zurich
'Discrete mathematics has experienced a spectacular growth during the last fifty years, and has matured into a modern subject with deep connections to many areas. Ron Graham has played a key role in this fascinating development, discovering many of these connections and contributing to the transformation of the field to its current shape. This is a beautiful volume, celebrating the contributions of a superb researcher who has always been, and still is, able to have fun while doing serious mathematics.' Noga Alon, Tel Aviv University and Princeton University, New Jersey
'This is a nice volume commemorating Ron Graham, one of the most influential researchers in discrete mathematics in the last half a century. The contributions of the volume cover a very wide variety of topics, ranging from Graph Theory through Ramsey Theory and Extremal Set Theory to number theoretic papers. As such, the book should be appealing to a large circle of researchers interested in these key subjects.' Michael Krivelevich, Tel Aviv University
'This book, a collection of articles, surveys and retrospectives connected to the life and work of Ron Graham, is a fitting testament to Ron's broad influence on the development of modern combinatorics, touching upon graph theory, Ramsey theory, number theory, quasirandomness, discrete geometry, the theory of polynomials and, of course, juggling.' David Conlon, University of Oxford
'With the rise of computers, discrete mathematics has seen explosive growth over the last half century. Throughout this era, Ron Graham has been leading the field. This book celebrates his numerous contributions and consists of a collection of research and survey articles written by many of the top researchers in the field. It is highly recommended!' Jacob Fox, Stanford University, California
'Two features of the book contribute to making it reader-friendly: its layout, which is very comfortable to read, and the numerous examples that are peppered throughout the chapters.' S. Collier Coutinho, The Mathematical Gazette
