Puccini's opera Turandot centers on three riddles, which the prince Calaf must answer correctly in order to avoid death. This talk won't be about opera, but it will feature three riddles in Ramsey theory: classical Ramsey numbers, Ramsey numbers of books, and Ramsey multiplicity constants.…

These results are the…
