How to solve it : a new aspect of mathematical method by George Plya( Book )

239 editions published between 1945 and 2014 in 18 languages and held by 4,019 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Outlines a method of solving mathematical problems for teachers and students based upon the four steps of understanding the problem, devising a plan, carrying out the plan, and checking the results
Mathematics and plausible reasoning by George Plya( Book )

127 editions published between 1954 and 2008 in 7 languages and held by 2,380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here the author of How to Solve It explains how to become a "good guesser." Marked by G. Polya's simple, energetic prose and use of clever examples from a wide range of human activities, this two-volume work explores techniques of guessing, inductive reasoning, and reasoning by analogy, and the role they play in the most rigorous of deductive disciplines."--Book cover
Problems and theorems in analysis by George Plya( Book )

256 editions published between 1925 and 2004 in 6 languages and held by 2,267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the reviews: " ... In the past, more of the leading mathematicians proposed and solved problems than today, and there were problem departments in many journals. Pólya and Szego must have combed all of the large problem literature from about 1850 to 1925 for their material, and their collection of the best in analysis is a heritage of lasting value. The work is unashamedly dated. With few exceptions, all of its material comes from before 1925. We can judge its vintage by a brief look at the author indices (combined). Let's start on the C's: Cantor, Carathéodory, Carleman, Carlson, Catalan, Cauchy, Cayley, Cesàro ... Or the L's: Lacour, Lagrange, Laguerre, Laisant, Lambert, Landau, Laplace, Lasker, Laurent, Lebesgue, Legendre ... Omission is also information: Carlitz, Erdös, Moser, etc."Bull. Americ. Math. Soc

Inequalities by G. H Hardy( Book )

95 editions published between 1934 and 2004 in 5 languages and held by 1,082 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic of the mathematical literature forms a comprehensive study of the inequalities used throughout mathematics. First published in 1934, it presents clearly and exhaustively both the statement and proof of all the standard inequalities of analysis. The authors were well known for their powers of exposition and were able here to make the subject accessible to a wide audience of mathematicians

Combinatorial enumeration of groups, graphs, and chemical compounds by George Plya( Book )

17 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in English and German and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1937 there appeared a paper that was to have a profound influence on the progress of combinatorial enumeration, both in its theoretical and applied aspects. Entitled Kombinatorische Anzahlbest immungen jUr Gruppen, Graphen und chemische Verbindungen, it was published in Acta Mathematica, Vol. 68, pp. 145 to 254. Its author, George Polya, was already a mathematician of considerable stature, well-known for outstanding work in many branches of mathematics, particularly analysis. The paper in Question was unusual in that it depended almost entirely on a single theorem -- the "Hauptsatz" of Section 4 -- a theorem which gave a method for solving a general type of enumera tion problem. On the face of it, this is not something that one would expect to run to over 100 pages. Yet the range of the applica tions of the theorem and of its ramifications was enormous, as Polya clearly showed. In the various sections of his paper he explored many applications to the enumeration of graphs, principally trees, and of chemical isomers, using his theorem to present a comprehen sive and unified treatment of problems which had previously been solved, if at all, only by ad hoc methods. In the final section he investigated the asymptotic properties of these enumerational results, bringing to bear his formidable insight as an analyst
The Stanford mathematics problem book: with hints and solutions by George Plya( Book )
