Mathematical Olympiads 1997-1998: Problems and Solutions

This booklet is an absolute should have for these people who love difficult mathematical difficulties. The ebook claims in its preface to be a continuation of Mathematical Contests 1997-1998: Olympiad difficulties and recommendations from worldwide, released through the yankee arithmetic Competitions. I made a couple of try to discover a reproduction of that ebook whilst getting ready this overview and used to be unsuccessful. (I have now been educated that the books from 1995-1996, 1996-1997, and 1997-1998 might be ordered from the yankee arithmetic Competitions internet page.) we're lucky that the Mathematical organization of the USA has made up our minds to start a brand new sequence of books, the MAA challenge Books sequence, and has began that sequence with this excellent selection of difficulties from world wide.
