Maxima and minima without calculus by
Ivan Niven(
Book
)
19 editions published between 1980 and 2006 in English and held by 838 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The purpose of this book is to put together in one place the basic elementary techniques for solving problems in maxima minima other than the methods of calculus and linear programming. The emphasis is not on individual problems, but on methods that solve large classes of problems. The many chapters of the book can be read independently, without references to what precedes or follows. Besides the many problems solved in the book, others are left to the reader to solve, with sketches of solutions given in the later pages

Diophantine approximations by
Ivan Niven(
Book
)
29 editions published between 1963 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This selfcontained treatment originated as a series of lectures delivered to the Mathematical Association of America. It covers basic results on homogeneous approximation of real numbers; the analogue for complex numbers; basic results for nonhomogeneous approximation in the real case; the analogue for complex numbers; and fundamental properties of the multiples of an irrational number, for both the fractional and integral parts. The author refrains from the use of continuous fractions and includes basic results in the complex case, a feature often neglected in favor of the real number discussion. Each chapter concludes with a bibliographic account of closely related work; these sections also contain the sources from which the proofs are drawn
