9780691024448: Polyominoes: Puzzles, Patterns, Problems, and Packings

Inspiring popular video games like Tetris while contributing to the study of combinatorial geometry and tiling theory, polyominoes have continued to spark interest ever since their inventor, Solomon Golomb, introduced them to puzzle enthusiasts several decades ago. In this fully revised and expanded edition of his landmark book, the author takes a new generation of readers on a mathematical journey into the world of the deceptively simple polyomino. Golomb incorporates important, recent developments, and poses problems, inviting the reader to play with and develop an understanding of the extraordinary properties of polyominoes.

About the Author:

Solomon W. Golomb, University Professor at the University of Southern California, teaches in the Departments of Mathematics and Electrical Engineering, invents mathematical puzzles, and publishes in many areas of science and technology.
