The ten martini problem - reason for name
@Carlo-- the link I gave is to the typewritten English translation of the Scottish book. The portal has also complete reproductions of the Polish handwritten original and its typed version. |

The ten martini problem - reason for name
Kac probably got the idea from participating in mathematicians' discussions in the famous Scottish Cafe when he was a student, and then a young researcher in Lwow before 1939. Quite often, a prize for solving a problem was a drink. See e.g. Problem 8 here: kielich.amu.edu.pl/Stefan_Banach/pdf/ks-szkocka/… |

Down-to-earth expositions of Hodge theory
All this is nicely written up in Chapter VI.5 of MR1893803 (2003g:32001) Fritzsche, Klaus; Grauert, Hans From holomorphic functions to complex manifolds. (English summary) Graduate Texts in Mathematics, 213. Springer-Verlag, New York, 2002. xvi+392 pp. ISBN: 0-387-95395-7 --I do not really know who came up with this approach, but the name of Kunihiko Kodaira appears quite often (Hodge-Kodaira decomposition, Serre-Kodaira duality). |
