"There is a caveat to the four color theorem. The graph has to be planar. That means no edges can cross each other. It has to be able to embedded on a two dimensional plane without crossings"

An easy to approach theory from the math world that lends insight to how complex software becomes complex. Everything in your software is probably more interconnected than you think, and it only becomes more difficult over time to untangle it.

And definitely check out the interactive examples to get a good feel for how complex things can get.

The four-color theorem provides a way to think about the complexity of graphs, which maps nicely to software.

Beschreibung wie die Komplexität von Graphen (Karten) direkt mit den Farben korrespondieren. Anhand dieses Schemas gezeigt wie die Komplexität beim kombinieren von Graphen steigt je nachdem wie man sie einbindet.
Daraus dann die Analogie zur Quellcode Modul Strukturierung gezogen
