About the Authors
  • People in all walks of life - and perhaps mathematicians especially - delight in working on problems for the sheer pleasure of meeting a challenge. The problem section of SIAM Review has always provided such a challenge for mathematicians. The section was started to offer classroom instructors and their students as well as other interested problemists, a set of problems -solved or unsolved - illustrating various applications of mathematics. In many cases the unsolved problems were eventually solved. Problems in Applied Mathematics is a compilation of 380 of SIAM Review's most interesting problems dating back to the journal's inception in 1959. The problems are classified into 22 broad categories including Series, Special Functions, Integrals, Polynomials, Probability, Combinatorics, Matrices and Determinants, Optimization, Inequalities, Ordinary Differential Equations, Boundary Value Problems, Asymptotics and Approximations, Mechanics, Graph Theory, and Geometry.

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This outstanding collection of instructive problems is organized into twenty-two broad sections such as probability, combinatorics, series, special functions, and so forth. Most of the problems include motivational material describing how the problem arose; the solutions, some of which approach the status of short papers, are accessible to a wide audience (say at the level of the American Mathematical Monthly). Solutions generally include references to further literature and pertinent comments by Klamkin. There is something in this volume for everyone, and is a welcome addition to the problems literature.' American Mathematics Monthly
