Index to Mathematical Problems 1980-1984
This book contains the text from about 5000 problems that were published in journal problem columns during the years 1980-1984. The problems are classified and then sorted by topic. References are given for the journal, year, and page number where the solution to the problem can be found in the literature. Also included are comprehensive author, title, and citation indexes as well as problems from national, regional, and international mathematical competitions.
What the reviewers say
- Charles Ashacher on Amazon.com
- "If you love problems, then this is the book for you."
- "This book is also easy on the eyes, with very crisp lettering."
- Charles Ashbacher in the Journal of Recreational Mathematics 24(1992)301
- "This book, and all subsequent issues, are necessary additions to all academic libraries and those of anyone with an interest in problems."
- "Any teacher of undergraduate mathematics can find a wealth of material here."
- Paul J. Campbell from Mathematics Magazine 65(992)358
- "This innovative and much-needed volume contains all of the more than 5,000 problems (and none of the solutions) from 28 mathematical journals and 16 contests from 1980 through 1984, all orignally in English."
- Murray S, Klamkin from the foreword
- "This is a must book for problemists as well as problem editors. I only wish it had been available a long time ago."
- Loren C. Larson from The American Mathematical Monthly 100(1993)600
- "Easy to read two-column format; hard to put down, with challenges and information on every page."
- Andy Liu from Crux Mathematicorum 19(1993)232-234
- "What a wealth of mathematical thought - from very elementary to the frontiers of research, from the almost trivial to open problems, from rather ponderous statements to very witty offerings! It is a true pleasure to choose some specific topic and discover what has been invented there."
- "The book is manageable, readable and enjoyable!"
- "My opinion of this magnificent work is highly enthusiastic."
- Hans Walser from Elemente der Mathematik 48(1993)44
- "Die Aufgaben sind gegliedert nach den Sachgebieten Algebra, Analysis, Kombinatorik, Geometrie, Zalentheorie sowie Unterhaltungsmathematik."
