Seeking Solutions

by John C. Burns

Professor John Burns, formerly Professor of Mathematics at the Royal Military College, Duntroon and Foundation Member of the Australian Mathematical Olympiad Committee, solves the problems of the 1988, 1989 and 1990 International Mathematical Olympiads.

Unlike other books in which only complete solutions are given, John Burns describes the complete thought processes he went through when solving the problems from scratch. Written in an inimitable and sensitive style, this book is a must for a student planning on developing the ability to solve advanced mathematics problems.
