Title  Mathematics magic and mystery 
Author(s)  Martin Gardner 
Publication  New York, Dover Publications, Inc., 1956. 
Description  xii, 176p. 
Abstract Note  Why do card tricks work? How can magicians do astonishing feats of mathematics mentally? Why do stage "mindreading" tricks work? As a rule, we simply accept these tricks and "magic" without recognizing that they are really demonstrations of strict laws based on probability, sets, number theory, topology, and other branches of mathematics.
This is the first booklength study of this fascinating branch of recreational mathematics. Written by one of the foremost experts on mathematical magic, it employs considerable historical data to summarize all previous work in this field. It is also a creative examination of laws and their exemplification, with scores of new tricks, insights, and demonstrations. Dozens of topological tricks are explained, and dozens of manipulation tricks are aligned with mathematical law.
