Deene two points of the Euclidean plane R 2 to be adjacent if they are at distance 1 from each other. It is known that the chromatic number of the resulting graph satisses 4 (R 2) 7. We obtain some partial results concerning (K 2) for subbelds K R. We believe that these results may help to focus the problem of determining (R 2)| either by providing a new upper bound, or by showing where to look for a new subgraph which increases the lower bound. 1. A Field-Theoretic Approach to the Problem Let… CONTINUE READING
