'Rainbows' Are a Mathematician’s Best Friend

Recently, Quanta reported on the new solution to a problem called Ringel's conjecture. Part of the proof involved using rainbow colorings, special color-coded ways of visualizing information. But the colorful technique has actually been helping mathematicians solve puzzles for a long time, and it figures in an even harder related problem that mathematicians are eyeing next.
