Mathematical people : profiles and interviews by Mathematical Association of America( Book )

25 editions published between 1985 and 2011 in English and held by 1,523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interviews and profiles of mathematicians, teachers, and friends of mathematics provide an insight into the motives, philosophies, and talents that drive the creative process of mathematics
More mathematical people : contemporary conversations by Donald J Albers( Book )

12 editions published between 1990 and 1994 in English and held by 872 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the tradition of the first volume of Mathematical People comes another collection of interviews and profiles with some of the most prestigious mathematicians of our time. The chapters tell in the mathematicians' own words how they became interested in mathematics, how they chose their speciality, and about their hobbies and personal lives. Each interview has its own colorful character and is full of photographs so personal and lively that they add a new dimension to the reader's perception. -- from dust jacket
The William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition problems and solutions : 1938-1964 by Andrew M Gleason( Book )

18 editions published between 1985 and 2005 in English and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Putnam Competition has since 1928 been providing a challenge to gifted college mathematics students. This book, the second of the Putnam Competition volumes, contains problems with their solutions for the years 1965-1984. Additional solutions are presented for many of the problems. Included is an essay on recollections of the first Putnam Exam by Herbert Robbins, as well as appendices listing the winning teams and students from 1965 through 1984. This volume offers the problem solver an enticing sample of challenging problems and their solutions. In 1980, the MAA published the first William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition book, covering the contest from 1938 to 1964. In 2002 the third of the Putnam problem books appeared, covering the years 1985 through 2000. All three of these books belong on the bookshelf of students, teachers, and all interested in problem solving
