Only the usual highschool math courses are required according to the jacket copy. It's this plus a passion for logic (that's the Otherwise of the subtitle) plus an agile mind which refuses to let go once teased into coming to grips with a tantalizing puzzle. Mr. Barr wrote the outstanding Experiments in TopoLogy (, p. , J). As a personal book this title provides dip-in-and-out. "Following the enthusiastic reaction to Mathematical Puzzles: A Connoisseur's Collection, Peter Winkler has compiled a new collection of elegant mathematical puzzles to challenge and entertain the reader. The original puzzle connoisseur shares these puzzles, old and new, so that you can add them to your own library." "This book is for lovers of Author: Peter Winkler. It is one of the two well-known Mathematical Papyri along with the Moscow Mathematical Papyrus. The Rhind Papyrus is larger than the Moscow Mathematical Papyrus, while the latter is older. The Rhind Mathematical Papyrus dates to the Second Intermediate Period of Egypt.
