The book of numbers
by
John H Conway(
Book
)
34 editions published between 1990 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 2,025 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In The Book of Numbers, two famous mathematicians fascinated by beautiful and intriguing number patterns share their insights and discoveries with each other and with readers. John Conway is the showman, master of mathematical games and flamboyant presentations; Richard Guy is the encyclopedist, always on top of problems waiting to be solved. Together they show us why patterns and properties of numbers have captivated mathematicians and nonmathematicians alike for centuries. The Book of Numbers features Conway and Guy's favorite stories about all the kinds of numbers any of us is likely to encounter, and many others besides. "Our aim," the authors write, "is to bring to the inquisitive reader ... an explanation of the many ways the word 'number' is used." They explore patterns that emerge in arithmetic, algebra, and geometry, describe these patterns' relevance both inside and outside mathematics, and introduce the strange worlds of complex, transcendental, and surreal numbers. This unique book brings together facts, pictures and stories about numbers in a way that no one but an extraordinarily talented pair of mathematicians and writers could do

Unsolved problems in number theory
by
Richard K Guy(
Book
)
47 editions published between 1981 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 1,484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For this new edition, Richard K. Guy has included new problems on symmetric and asymmetric primes, sums of higher powers, Diophantine mtuples, and Conway's RATS and palindromes. The author has also included a new feature at the end of several of the sections: lists of references to OEIS, Neil Sloane's Online Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences."BOOK JACKET

Unsolved problems in geometry
by
Hallard T Croft(
Book
)
18 editions published between 1991 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mathematicians and nonmathematicians alike have long been fascinated by geometrical problems, particularly those that are intuitive in the sense of being easy to state, perhaps with the aid of a simple diagram. Each section in the book describes a problem or a group of related problems. Usually the problems are capable of generalization of variation in many directions. The book can be appreciated at many levels and is intended for everyone from amateurs to research mathematicians

The inquisitive problem solver

Book
)
8 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
'The Inquisitive Problem Solver is a collection of mathematical miniatures composed to stimulate and entertain. On a deeper level, these little puzzles, accessible to a general audience, provide a setting rich in mathematical themes. One of the larger purposes of the book is to show how everyday situations can lead an inquisitive problem solver to profound and farreaching mathematical principles. Discussions accompanying the problems reinforce important techniques in discrete mathematics, and the solutions  which require verbal arguments  show that proofs and careful reasoning are at the core of doing mathematics. In addition, anyone reading this book will learn that asking good questions is just as important to the progress of mathematics as answering questions. The book contains more than a dozen open problems for further research by amateurs or professionals. This treasury of problems will serve as a resource for anyone seeking to improve their problemsolving knowledge and knowhow. ' from publisher's description
