Abstract

In their article "Numerical Patterns and Geometrical Configurations" on pages 82-92 of Mathematics Magazine 57 (1984), Harold Dorwart and Warren Page note that the venerable David Hilbert once remarked "...there was a time when the study of configurations was considered the most important branch of all geometry." "Today," added Dorwart and Page, "...most students have limited knowledge about configurations-except perhaps the Pappus (9,3), the Desargue (10,3), and the Petersen graph (the logo on the cover of the Journal of Graph Theory)."
