In 1782, the Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler posed a problem
whose mathematical content at the time seemed about as much as that of
a parlor puzzle. 178 years passed before a complete solution was found;
not only did it inspire a wealth of mathematics, it is now a cornerstone
of modern design theory.
