Research Problems in Discrete Geometry
(Springer-Verlag, New York, 2005; 499 pp.)

Written for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers in discrete geometry, this book provides an overview of the 150-year-old field and presents a collection of more than 500 attractive open problems in the field, some old, others new and never before published, and the most important partial results related to these problems. Intended as a source book for both professional mathematicians and graduate students who love beautiful mathematical questions, it provides a fine selection of research problems for graduate students looking for a dissertation topic. Brass is associate professor of computer science at City College and The Graduate Center; Moser is professor emeritus at McGill; and Pach is a distinguished professor of computer science and mathematics at City College and The Graduate Center; Research Professor, Courant Institute, NYU; and Senior Research Fellow, Renyi Institute, Budapest.
