Sequences, combinations, limits. Translated and adapted from the Russian by Leslie Cohn and Joan Teller. Reprint of the 1969 ed. (English) Zbl 1011.40001
Mineola, NY: Dover Publications. x, 142 p. $ 8.95 (2002).
This Dover reprint is the third book in the series “The Library School of Mathematics”. This little book is designed as a self-reading experience for 9th and 10th grade students. There are three chapters: Sequences, written by Gelfand, Combinations, by Gerver and Kushnirenko, and Limits, prepared by Kirillov and Konstantinov. Complete solutions for the 140 problems in the text are provided in the appendix. The first chapter also contains a section on mathematical induction. The remaining chapters also contain a number of problems for which mathematical induction is the proof tool. The book is well written for a European audience, but is probably a bit too challenging for most American public school students.
