Ramsey theory: Learning about the needle in the haystack
May-June 2013 (vol. 11 no. 3)
pp. 85-87
Shari Lawrence Pfleeger, Dartmouth College
Results from number theory show us that even in seemingly random sets, we can find order; total disorder is impossible. Ramsey's theorem can help broaden our perspective in cybersecurity by showing us how to use the emergent order to find patterns and to design systems to avoid certain patterns.
