On the History and Solution of the Four-Color Map Problem.
Mitchem, John
Two-Year College Mathematics Journal, v12 n2 p108-17 Mar 1981
A review of the statement and history of the Four-Color theorem is followed by an explanation of Appel and Haken's solution of the problem with a computer-aided proof. This is seen as the first proof in mathematics that would not be done without a computer. (MP)
