Endre Szemerédi (born August 21, 1941) is a Hungarian mathematician, working in the field of combinatorics, currently professor at Rutgers University. He was born in Budapest. His masters in mathematics were Paul Erdös and András Hajnal. August 21 is the 233rd day of the year (234th in leap years) in the Gregorian Calendar. ... 1941 was a common year starting on Wednesday (link will take you to calendar). ... A mathematician is a person whose area of study and research is mathematics. ... Combinatorics is a branch of mathematics that studies finite collections of objects that satisfy specified criteria. ... Rutgers University Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, is located in New Brunswick, Piscataway, Camden and Newark, New Jersey. ... Budapest (pronounced or ), the capital city of Hungary and the countrys principal political, industrial, commercial and transportation centre, has more than 1. ... The title given to this article is incorrect due to technical limitations. ...


He is best known for his proof from 1969 of an old conjecture of Paul Erdős and Paul Turán: if a sequence of natural numbers has positive upper density then it contains arbitrarily long arithmetic progressions; this is now known as Szemerédi's theorem. One of the key tools introduced in his proof is now known as the Szemerédi regularity lemma, which has become a very important tool in combinatorics. He is also known for the Szemerédi-Trotter theorem in incidence geometry. The title given to this article is incorrect due to technical limitations. ... Paul (Pál) Turán (August 28, 1910–September 26, 1976) was a Hungarian mathematician who made contributions in number theory and group theory. ... In mathematics, an arithmetic progression is a sequence of numbers such that the difference of any two successive members of the sequence is a constant. ... In mathematics, Szemerédis theorem states that a set of natural numbers of density > 0 contains finite arithmetic progressions, of any length k we may ask for. ... Szemerédis regularity lemma states that for every and every positive integer there is an integer such that every graph with vertices has an -regular partition into classes, Categories: Mathematics stubs ... Combinatorics is a branch of mathematics that studies finite collections of objects that satisfy specified criteria. ... In mathematics, the Szemerédi-Trotter theorem is a result in the fields of combinatorial geometry and irregularities of distribution. ...


He is a corresponding member (1982), and member (1987) of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. The Hungarian Academy of Sciences (in short: HAS, in Hungarian: Magyar Tudományos Akadémia) was founded in 1825, when Count István Széchenyi offered one years income of his estate for the purposes of a Learned Society at a district session of the Diet in Bratislava (seat...
