ABSTRACT

Paul Erdös attempted, very often successfully,
to prove the existence of mathematical objects with
particular properties. His methodologies have been
adapted with much success to give efficient algorithms
for creating those objects. The algorithmic approach,
provides new insight into the mathematical proofs. In
many cases, as we shall illustrate, it has led to new
theorems and conjectures.
