Название: The Mathematical Funfair
Автор: B. Bolt
Mathematical puzzles and games appeal to a wide range of
people from all walks of life. Puzzles appear in all sorts of
places: on matchboxes, in Xmas crackers, on breakfast cereal
packets, on beer mats, in newspapers, in magazines, and last
but not least, in puzzle books. This book has been written
following the success of my earlier book, The Amazing
Mathematical Amusement Arcade. It has well over a hundred
different puzzles with which to capture your imagination.
They range widely from matchstick and coin puzzles, to
railway shunting problems, number puzzles, chess-board
puzzles, topological impossibilities, tricks, games, and yet
more on magic squares. Some puzzles are variations on well
tried but worth repeating themes, but there are enough
original ones here to challenge,the most ardent puzzler.
The second part of the book is given over to a detailed
commentary so that you can check your solution, or find
help when baffled. But don't give up too quickly for the real
satisfaction comes in solving a puzzle for yourself.
