There has been debate about whether it is a serious and important problem or merely a curiosity, but there can be no denying its popularity. Generations of mathematicians, both professional and amateur, have tried their hand at solving it. These efforts have resulted in a mighty body of theory with many deep and important results. Nevertheless, until 1984… Expand
