Do you like puzzles based on logic and reasoning? Try this one: In a certain bank the position of cashier, manager, and teller are held by Brown, Jones, and Smith, though not necessarily in that order. The teller, who was an only child, earns the least. Smith, who married Brown's sister, earns more than the manager. What position does each man fill? If you like to entertain yourself and stretch mental muscles on problems like this or more difficult ones, here are 101 entirely new problems for which you need no special knowledge, no mathematical training—simply the ability to reason clearly. Follow these problems through and you will not only increase your ability to think in abstractions, but you will enjoy solving murder problems and robberies, see which fishermen are liars and how a blind man can identify color purely by logic, and enjoy dozens of interesting situations. Puzzles range from easy to relatively difficult, and will please both beginners and experts.

This lucid introductory text offers both an analytic and an axiomatic approach to plane projective geometry. The analytic treatment builds and expands upon students' familiarity with elementary plane analytic geometry and provides a well-motivated approach to projective geometry. Subsequent chapters explore Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometry as specializations of the projective plane, revealing the existence of an infinite number of geometries, each Euclidean in nature but characterized by a different set of distance- and angle-measurement formulas. Outstanding pedagogical features include worked-through examples, introductions and summaries for each topic, and numerous theorems, proofs, and exercises that reinforce each chapter's precepts. Two helpful indexes conclude the text, along with answers to all odd-numbered exercises. In addition to its value to undergraduate students of mathematics, computer science, and secondary mathematics education, this volume provides an excellent reference for computer science professionals.
