One hundred problems in elementary mathematics by Hugo Steinhaus( Book )

75 editions published between 1923 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,070 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Both a challenge to mathematically inclined readers and a useful supplementary text for high school and college courses, One Hundred Problems in Elementary Mathematics presents an instructive, stimulating collection of problems. Many problems address such matters as numbers, equations, inequalities, points, polygons, circles, ellipses, space, polyhedra, and spheres. An equal number deal with more amusing or more practical subjects, such as a picnic ham, blood groups, rooks on a chessboard, and the doings of the ingenious Dr. Abracadabrus. Are the problems in this book really elementary? Perhaps not in the lay reader's sense, for anyone who desires to solve these problems must know a fair amount of mathematics, up to calculus. Nevertheless, Professor Steinhaus has given complete, detailed solutions to every one of his 100 problems, and anyone who works through the solutions will painlessly learn an astonishing amount of mathematics. A final chapter provides a true test for the most proficient readers: 13 additional unsolved problems, including some for which the author himself does not know the solutions

21 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and German and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents, in his own words, the life of Hugo Steinhaus (1887@0394@03BC1972), noted Polish mathematician of Jewish background, educator, and mathematical popularizer. A student of Hilbert, a pioneer of the foundations of probability and game theory, and a contributor to the development of functional analysis, he was one of those instrumental to the extraordinary flowering of Polish mathematics before and after World War I. In particular, it was he who @0394@03C6discovered@0394@03C7 the great Stefan Banach. Exhibiting his great integrity and wit, Steinhaus@0394@03C3s personal story of the turbulent times he survived @0394@03BC including two world wars and life postwar under the Soviet heel @0394@03BC cannot but be of consuming interest. His recounting of the fearful years spent evading Nazi terror is especially moving. The steadfast honesty and natural dignity he maintained while pursuing a life of demanding scientific and intellectual enquiry in the face of encroaching calamity and chaos show him to be truly a mathematician for all seasons. The present work will be of great interest not only to mathematicians wanting to learn some of the details of the mathematical blossoming that occurred in Poland in the first half of the 20th@222B@03C2century, but also to anyone wishing to read a first-hand account of the history of those unquiet times in Europe @0394@03BC and indeed world-wide @0394@03BC by someone of uncommon intelligence and forthrightness situated near an eye of the storm
