E-Pub Author Martin Gardner ❤ Over a period of 25 years as author of the Mathematical Games column for Scientific American, Martin Gardner devoted a column every six months or so to short math problems or puzzles He was especially careful to present new and unfamiliar puzzles that had not been included in such classic collections as those by Sam Loyd and Henry Dudeney Later, these puzzles were published in book collections, incorporating reader feedback on alternate solutions or interesting generalizations.The present volume contains a rich selection of 70 of the best of these brain teasers, in some cases including references to new developments related to the puzzle Now enthusiasts can challenge their solving skills and rattle their egos with such stimulating mind benders as The Returning Explorer, The Mutilated Chessboard, Scrambled Box Tops, The Fork in the Road, Bronx vs Brooklyn, Touching Cigarettes, and 64 other problems involving logic and basic math Solutions are included.Martin Gardner was a renowned author who published over 70 books on subjects from science and math to poetry and religion He also had a lifelong passion for magic tricks and puzzles Well known for his mathematical games column in Scientific American and his Trick of the Month in Physics Teacher magazine, Gardner attracted a loyal following with his intelligence, wit, and imagination.Martin Gardner A RemembranceThe worldwide mathematical community was saddened by the death of Martin Gardner on May 22, 2010 Martin was 95 years old when he died, and had written 70 or 80 books during his long lifetime as an author Martin s first Dover books were published in 1956 and 1957 Mathematics, Magic and Mystery, one of the first popular books on the intellectual excitement of mathematics to reach a wide audience, and Fads and Fallacies in the Name of Science, certainly one of the first popular books to cast a devastatingly skeptical eye on the claims of pseudoscience and the many guises in which the modern world has given rise to it Both of these pioneering books are still in print with Dover today along with than a dozen other titles of Martin s books They run the gamut from his elementary Codes, Ciphers and Secret Writing, which has been enjoyed by generations of younger readers since the 1980s, to the demanding The New Ambidextrous Universe Symmetry and Asymmetry from Mirror Reflections to Superstrings, which Dover published in its final revised form in 2005 To those of us who have been associated with Dover for a long time, however, Martin was than an author, albeit a remarkably popular and successful one As a member of the small group of long time advisors and consultants, which included NYU s Morris Kline in mathematics, Harvard s I Bernard Cohen in the history of science, and MIT s J P Den Hartog in engineering, Martin s advice and editorial suggestions in the formative 1950s helped to define the Dover publishing program and give it the point of view which despite many changes, new directions, and the consequences of evolution continues to be operative today In the Author s Own Words Politicians, real estate agents, used car salesmen, and advertising copy writers are expected to stretch facts in self serving directions, but scientists who falsify their results are regarded by their peers as committing an inexcusable crime Yet the sad fact is that the history of science swarms with cases of outright fakery and instances of scientists who unconsciously distorted their work by seeing it through lenses of passionately held beliefs A surprising proportion of mathematicians are accomplished musicians Is it because music and mathematics share patterns that are beautiful Martin Gardner MY BRAIN IS OPEN The Mathematical
