Publisher Synopsis

From the reviews:"The problems are enhanced by introductory summaries, overviews of notations and definitions, historical comments, and bibliographic references. The text's sequential approach will help developing mathematicians both expand their understanding of advanced mathematics and improve their problem-solving abilities ... . Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers/faculty." (J. Johnson, Choice, Vol. 51 (2), October, 2013)"This marvelous collection of problems represents an interesting and valuable resource for students who prepare various types of mathematics contests. ... very strongly recommends this book to all undergraduate and graduate students curious about elementary mathematics. Teachers would find this book to be a welcome resource, as will contest organizers." (Teodora-Liliana Radulescu, zbMATH, Vol. 1270, 2013) Read more...
