    There are two papers involved. The only online source I know of is AMS. See below for links. You will need access to a computer from an subscriber - e.g., university. Alternatively, you can try the library. Both papers appear in the Annals of Mathematics, 2nd Ser., Vol. 141, No. 3 (May, 1995) pp 443-572.

    conjecture: anyone not knowing how to find it is going to have some difficulty understanding it.

    But don't write it in the margarine:

    "My butter, garcon, is writ large in!"
    a diner was heard to be chargin'.
    "I HAD to write there,"
    exclaimed waiter Pierre,
    "I couldn't find room in the margarine."

    The first links are scanned versions, the alternative versions are the same papers, but smaller files.

    Hi!
    if you are undergraduate or even if you are PhD (as I am) and you read those paper you can become crazy, if you do not then for sure you need a big bottle of aspirines :). By the way I read them and I am alive and not enough crazy!

    Then how can Analytical arguments ever prove anything?

    Beats checking all the cases of the four color theorem by hand.

    Hi, Johannes - I'd be most grateful if you could email me a copy of the paper you had referred to. My email id is gs (underscore) chandy (at) yahoo (dot) com - please substitute the appropriate characters in the brackets and remove the spaces around each bracket to get my email id. Thanks and regards, gsc

    Would it be possible (& legal) to upload a copy.
