This is the sixth edition of Aigner and Ziegler’s attempt to peek at God’s book of all the best proofs. See our reviews See the reviews of the fourth edition (2009) and the first edition (1998), together with the brief notice of the fifth. Among other things, the sixth edition has “an entirely new chapter with Gurvits’s proof of Van der Waerden’s permanent conjecture” which can then be used to study the number of Latin squares.


Fernando Q. Gouvêa is the editor of MAA Reviews.
