Publisher Description:
"Fans will find this volume indispensable; casual readers will find it an attractive nuisance," observed Scientific American of this rich and challenging compilation of puzzles. From brainteasers that any novice can figure out to complex problems involving number theory, this puzzle treasury offers a splendid variety of conundrums. Readers can follow the path of the bouncing billiard balls, search for the lost chord, size up golden spheres, calculate the number of squared eggs, and take on dozens of other imaginative challenges, including diabolic squares, flexagons, domino games, and geometric dissections.
Assembled by Joseph S. Madachy, lead editor of the Journal of Recreational Mathematics, this collection features problems as well as classical puzzles, many of which offer fascinating insights into the nature of mathematics. Mystifying Mathematical Puzzles provides excellent entertainment for puzzle enthusiasts of every level and is ideal for home or classroom use. Complete solutions to all puzzles are included.
