## Golomb, Solomon W. (1932–2016)American
Mathematical Monthly in 1954 when Golomb was a 22-year-old graduate
student at Harvard, defined a polyomino as a simply-connected set of squares
(that is, a set of squares joined along their edges.) Golomb also originated
the idea of graceful graphs. ## Reference- Golomb, Solomon W.
