Editorial Reviews


'Written in the very clear style that characterizes the two previous volumes, and there is bound to be something here that will appeal to anyone, both student and teacher alike. For instructors, Mathematical Gems III is useful as a source of thematic ideas around which to build classroom lectures.' Mathematics and Computer Education

This book and its predecessors are pitched at the level of advanced high school students and undergraduates. All problems employ elementary techniques and the solutions are easily followed. Volume III contains a substantial chapter devoted to the best Internationl Mathematical Olympiad problems from the early '80s and chapters on Ramanujan's highly composite numbers, Fibonacci numbers - with much you will find new - and "a problem of Paul Erdös". The author's tone is amiable and light. There is nothing trite in the collection and no surplus fat. For Martin Gardner fans in search of something a little more highly engineered, Gems II and III will prove to be a sound investment.
