He has obtained a number of important results and solved several long-standing conjectures and problems. His penetrating insight has enabled him to make new discoveries in subjects which have already been thoroughly studied. For example, inspired by Fisk’s seminal result that all the 3-edge-colorings of a cubic bipartite planar graph are Kempe equivalent, Mohar raised the problem of characterizing
