In 1852, mathematics professor Augustus De Morgan described a problem posed by a student: If a figure be anyhow divided and the compartments differently coloured so that figures with any portion of common boundary line are differently coloured—four colours may be wanted, but not more—the following is the case in which four colours are wanted. Query cannot a necessity for five or more be invented. That is, you’ll never need more than four colors on an ordinary two-dimensional map in order to color every country differently from the countries adjoining it. A proof for the four-color conjecture evaded mathematicians until 1976, when Kenneth…
