Most widely held works by George Pólya
How to solve it; a new aspect of mathematical method by George Pólya ( Book )
97 editions published between 1945 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,407 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 Pólya ( Book )
62 editions published between 1954 and 1990 in 4 languages and held by 1,998 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 Pólya ( Book )
52 editions published between 1972 and 2004 in English and German and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the reviews: "The work is one of the real classics of this century; it has had much influence on teaching, on research in several branches of hard analysis, particularly complex function theory, and it has been an essential indispensable source book for those seriously interested in mathematical problems. These volumes contain many extraordinary problems and sequences of problems, mostly from some time past, well worth attention today and tomorrow. Written in the early twenties by two young mathematicians of outstanding talent, taste, breadth, perception, perseverence, and pedagogical skill, this work broke new ground in the teaching of mathematics and how to do mathematical research.
