Title  100 Geometric games 
Author(s)  Pierre Berloquin;Denis Dugas (ill) 
Publication  Mineola, Dover Publications, Inc., 1976. 
Description  viii, 146p. 
Abstract Note  There are three loops in a tangle of rope. How many are independent, and how many are interlocked? Two knights stand on a chessboard. How many other knights must you add so that each square is occupied or threatened by a knight?
Among six seemingly identical drawings of mandalas, each rotated by multiples of 60 degrees, one is different. Which is it, and why?
Challenge yourself with these mindbenders, brainteasers, and puzzles. Each of them has been carefully selected so that none will be too tough for anyone without a math background but they're not too easy. Some are original, and all are clearly and accurately answered at the back of the book.

Title  Advanced euclidean geometry 
Author(s)  Roger A. Johnson 
Publication  Mineola, Dover Publications, Inc., 1960. 
Description  xiii, 319p. 
Abstract Note  For many years, this elementary treatise on advanced Euclidean geometry has been the standard textbook in this area of classical mathematics; no other book has covered the subject quite as well. It explores the geometry of the triangle and the circle, concentrating on extensions of Euclidean theory, and examining in detail many relatively recent theorems. Several hundred theorems and corollaries are formulated and proved completely; numerous others remain unproved, to be used by students as exercises.
The author makes liberal use of circular inversion, the theory of pole and polar, and many other modern and powerful geometrical tools throughout the book. In particular, the method of "directed angles" offers not only a powerful method of proof but also furnishes the shortest and most elegant form of statement for several common theorems. This accessible text requires no more extensive preparation than high school geometry and trigonometry.  See more at: http://store.doverpublications.com/0486462374.html#sthash.XgrXaag0.dpuf

Title  Challenging mathematical problems with elementary solutions Vol.1: Combinatorial Analysis and Probability Theory 
Author(s)  A. M. Yaglom;I. M. Yaglom;James McCawley (tr.);Basil Gordon (ed.) 
Publication  New York, Dover Publications, Inc., 1964. 
Description  viii, 231p. 
Abstract Note  Volume One contains 100 problems, with detailed solutions, all dealing with probability theory and combinatorial analysis. Topics include the representation of integers as sums and products, combinatorial problems on the chessboard, geometric problems on combinatorial analysis, problems on the binomial coefficients, problems on computing probabilities, experiments with infinitely many possible outcomes, and experiments with a continuum of possible outcomes.

Title  Challenging mathematical problems with elementary solutions Vol. 2: Problems From Various Branches of Mathematics 
Author(s)  A. M. Yaglom;I. M. Yaglom;James McCawley (tr.);Basil Gordon (ed.) 
Publication  New Delho, Dover Publications, Inc., 1964. 
Description  ix, 214p. 
Series  (Dover Books on Mathematics) 
Abstract Note  Volume Two contains 74 problems from various branches of mathematics, dealing with such topics as points and lines, lattices of points in the plane, topology, convex polygons, distribution of objects, nondecimal counting, theory of primes, and more. In both volumes the statements of the problems are given first, followed by a section giving complete solutions. Answers and hints are given at the end of the book.

Title  Elementary wave optics 
Author(s)  Robert H. Webb 
Publication  Mineola, Dover Publications, Inc., 1969. 
Description  xii, 268p. 
Abstract Note  is the only textbook on the subject specifically designed for a onesemester introductory course for advanced undergraduates or graduate students in astronomy and astrophysics. It starts from first principles in order to fill gaps in students' backgrounds, make teaching easier for professors who are not expert radio astronomers, and provide a useful reference to the essential equations used by practitioners.
This unique textbook reflects the fact that students of multiwavelength astronomy typically can afford to spend only one semester studying the observational techniques particular to each wavelength band. "Essential Radio Astronomy" presents only the most crucial concepts succinctly and accessibly. It covers the general principles behind radio telescopes, receivers, and digital backends without getting bogged down in engineering details. Emphasizing the physical processes in radio sources, the book's approach is shaped by the view that radio astrophysics owes more to thermodynamics than electromagnetism.

Title  Entertaining mathematical puzzles 
Author(s)  Martin Gardner 
Publication  New York, Dover Publications, Inc., 1961. 
Description  xii, 112p. 
Abstract Note  , Entertaining Mathematical Puzzles is a mixture of old and new riddles, grouped into sections that cover a variety of mathematical topics: money, speed, plane and solid geometry, probability, topology, tricky puzzles, and more. The probability section, for example, points out that everything we do, everything that happens around us, obeys the laws of probability; geometry puzzles test our ability to think pictorially and often, in more than one dimension; while topology, among the "youngest and rowdiest branches of modern geometry," offers a glimpse into a strange dimension where properties remain unchanged, no matter how a figure is twisted, stretched, or compressed. Clear and concise comments at the beginning of each section explain the nature and importance of the math needed to solve each puzzle. A carefully explained solution follows each problem.
