Description

Mathematical Miniatures is about gems of mathematics: pretty results that one simply has to share with fellow maths enthusiasts. The results are in the tradition of the proofs that the mathematician Paul Erdős described as being ‘from The Book’. And they fit the description given by Isaac Newton when he talked poetically of the smoother pebbles and prettier shells that are to be found in plenty upon any seashore. The book is meant for lovers of mathematics, for high school and undergraduate mathematics teachers, and for high school students (10-12).
