Geometric problems on maxima and minima by Titu Andreescu( )
20 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Questions of maxima and minima have great practical significance, with applications to physics, engineering, and economics; they have also given rise to theoretical advances, notably in calculus and optimization. Indeed, while most texts view the study of extrema within the context of calculus, this carefully constructed problem book takes a uniquely intuitive approach to the subject: it presents hundreds of extreme value problems, examples, and solutions primarily through Euclidean geometry. Key features and topics: * Comprehensive selection of problems, including Greek geometry and optics, Newtonian mechanics, isoperimetric problems, and open questions, such as Malfatti?s problem * Unified approach to the subject, with emphasis on geometric, algebraic, analytic, and combinatorial reasoning * Presentation and application of classical inequalities, including Cauchy--Schwarz and Minkowski?s Inequality; important results in real variable theory, such as the Intermediate Value Theorem; and emphasis on simple but useful geometric concepts, including transformations, convexity, and symmetry * Clear solutions to the problems, often accompanied by figures * Hundreds of exercises of varying difficulty, from straightforward to Olympiad-caliber Written by a team of established mathematicians and teachers, this work draws on the authors? experience in the classroom and as Olympiad coaches. By exposing readers to a wealth of creative problem-solving approaches, the text communicates not only geometry but also algebra, calculus, and topology. Ideal for use at the junior and senior undergraduate level, as well asin enrichment programs and Olympiad training for advanced high school students, this book?s breadth and depth will appeal to a wide audience, from secondary school teachers and pupils to graduate students, professional mathematicians, and puzzle enthusiasts.

Putnam and beyond by Rǎzvan Gelca( )
15 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Putnam and Beyond takes the reader on a journey through the world of college mathematics, focusing on some of the most important concepts and results in the theories of polynomials, linear algebra, real analysis in one and several variables, differential equations, coordinate geometry, trigonometry, elementary number theory, combinatorics, and probability. Using the W.L. Putnam Mathematical Competition for undergraduates as an inspiring symbol to build an appropriate math background for graduate studies in pure or applied mathematics, the reader is eased into transitioning from problem-solving at the high school level to the university and beyond, that is, to mathematical research. Key features of Putnam and Beyond @* Preliminary material provides an overview of common methods of proof: argument by contradiction, mathematical induction, pigeonhole principle, ordered sets, and invariants. @* Each chapter systematically presents a single subject within which problems are clustered in every section according to the specific topic. @* The exposition is driven by more than 1100 problems and examples chosen from numerous sources from around the world; many original contributions come from the authors. @* Complete solutions to all problems are given at the end of the book. The source, author, and historical background are cited whenever possible. This work may be used as a study guide for the Putnam exam, as a text for many different problem-solving courses, and as a source of problems for standard courses in undergraduate mathematics. Putnam and Beyond is organized for self-study by undergraduate and graduate students, as well as teachers and researchers in the physical sciences who wish to expand their mathematical horizons

An introduction to diophantine equations a problem-based approach by Titu Andreescu( )
17 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This problem-solving book is an introduction to the study of Diophantine equations, a class of equations in which only integer solutions are allowed. The material is organized in two parts: Part I introduces the reader to elementary methods necessary in solving Diophantine equations, such as the decomposition method, inequalities, the parametric method, modular arithmetic, mathematical induction, Fermat's method of infinite descent, and the method of quadratic fields; Part II contains complete solutions to all exercises in Part I. The presentation features some classical Diophantine equations, including linear, Pythagorean, and some higher degree equations, as well as exponential Diophantine equations. Many of the selected exercises and problems are original or are presented with original solutions. [This book] is intended for undergraduates, advanced high school students and teachers, mathematical contest participants - including Olympiad and Putnam competitors - as well as readers interested in essential mathematics. The work uniquely presents unconventional and non-routine examples, ideas, and techniques."--From back cover
