Publisher Comments:


Martin Gardner's Mathematical Games column ran in Scientific American from 1956 to 1986. In these columns Gardner introduced hundreds of thousands of readers to the delights of mathematics and of puzzles and problem solving. His column broke such stories as Rivest, Shamir and Adelman on public-key cryptography, Mandelbrot on fractals, Conway on Life, and Penrose on tilings. He enlivened classic geometry and number theory and introduced readers to new areas such as combinatorics and graph theory. Now this material has been brought together on a single, searchable source. A profile/interview of Martin Gardner with dozens of photos in included on the CD.

The disk contains:
  • Hexaflexagons and Other Mathematical Diversions
  • The Second Scientific American Book of Mathematical Puzzles and Diversions
  • New Mathematical Diversions
  • The Unexpected Hanging and Other Mathematical Diversions
  • Martin Gardner's 6th Book of Mathematical Diversions from Scientific American
