**This book contains 101 highly rated problems used in training and testing the USA IMO Team. It gradually builds students algebraic skills and techniques and aims to broaden students views of mathematics and better prepare them for participation in mathematics competitions. It provides in-depth enrichment in important areas of algebra by reorganizing and enhancing students problem-solving tactics and stimulates interest for future study of mathematics. The problems are carefully graded, ranging from quite accessible towards quite challenging. The problems have been well developed and are highly recommended to any student aspiring to participate at National or International Mathematical Olympiads.**

## 101 Problems In Algebra

Posted: August 8, 2012 in algebraTags: 101 problems in algebra, algebra, titu andreescu

**This text is intended for a one- or two-semester undergraduate course in** **abstract algebra. Traditionally, these courses have ****covered the theoretical** **aspects of groups, rings, and elds. However, with the development of** **computing in the last several decades, applications that involve abstract algebra** **and discrete mathematics have become increasingly important, and ****many science, engineering, and computer science students are now electing** **to minor in mathematics. Though theory still occupies a central role in the** **subject of abstract algebra and no student should go through such a course** **without a good notion of what a proof is, the importance of applications** **such as coding theory and cryptography has grown signicantly.**

## INEQUALITIES THEOREMS TECHNIQUES AND SELECTED PROBLEMS

Posted: August 8, 2012 in inequalitiesTags: inequalities, mathematical olympiads

**This work is about inequalities which play an important role in mathematical Olympiads. It contains 175 solved problems in the form of exercises and, in addition, 310 solved problems. The book also covers the theoretical background of the most important theorems and techniques required for solving inequalities. It is written for all middle and high-school students, as well as for graduate and undergraduate students. School teachers and trainers for mathematical competitions will also gain benefit from this book.**

**The Larson CALCULUS program has a long history of innovation in the calculus market. It has been widely praised by a generation of students and professors for its solid and effective pedagogy that addresses the needs of a broad range of teaching and learning styles and environments. Each title is just one component in a comprehensive calculus course program that carefully integrates and coordinates print, media, and technology products for successful teaching and learning.**

## LINEAR ALGEBRA An Introduction Richard Bronson

Posted: August 8, 2012 in university mathematicsTags: linear algebra

**In this appealing and well-written text, Richard Bronson gives readers a substructure for a firm understanding of the abstract concepts of linear algebra and its applications. The author starts with the concrete andcomputational (a 3 x 5 matrix describing a stores inventory) and leads the reader to a choice of major applications (Markov chains, least squares approximation, and solution of differential equations using Jordan normal form). The first three chapters address the basics: matrices, vector spaces, and linear transformations. The next three cover eigenvalues, Euclidean inner products, and Jordan canonical forms, offering possibilities that can be tailored to the instructors taste and to the length of the course. Bronsons approach to computation is modern and algorithmic, and his theory is clean and straightforward. Throughout, the views of the theory presented are broad and balanced. Key material is highlighted in the text and summarized at end of each chapter. The book also includes ample exercises with answers and hints. With its inclusion of all the needed pedagogical features, this text will be a pleasure for teachers and students alike. **

## MATHEMATICAL OLYMPIAD IN CHINA PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS

Posted: August 7, 2012 in old olympiad problem booksTags: china olympiad

**The International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) is a competition for high school students. China has taken part in IMO twenty times since 1985 and has won the top ranking for countries thirteen times, with a multitude of golds for individual students. The 6 students China sent every year were selected from 20 to 30 students among approximately 130 students who take part in the China Mathematical Competition during the winter months. This volume comprises a collection of original problems with solutions that China used to train their Olympiad team in the years from 2003 to 2006.**

**Everything you need to know-basic essential concepts-about calculus**

**For anyone looking for a readable alternative to the usual unwieldy calculus text, here’s a concise, no-nonsense approach to learning calculus.**

## GEOMETRY REVISITED (Mathematical Association of America Textbooks)

Posted: August 6, 2012 in geometryTags: geometry revisited

**Among the many beautiful and nontrivial theorems in geometry found in Geometry Revisited are the theorems of Ceva, Menelaus, Pappus, Desargues, Pascal, and Brianchon. A nice proof is given of Morley’s remarkable theorem on angle trisectors. The transformational point of view is emphasized: reflections, rotations, translations, similarities, inversions, and affine and projective transformations. Many fascinating properties of circles, triangles, quadrilaterals, and conics are developed.**
