9781461472728: Problem-Solving and Selected Topics in Euclidean Geometry: In the Spirit of the Mathematical Olympiads

"Problem-Solving and Selected Topics in Euclidean Geometry:  in the Spirit of the Mathematical Olympiads" contains theorems which are of particular value for the solution of geometrical problems. Emphasis is given in the discussion of a variety of methods, which play a significant role for the solution of problems in Euclidean Geometry. Before the complete solution of every problem, a key idea is presented so that the reader will be able to provide the solution. Applications of the basic geometrical methods which include analysis, synthesis, construction and proof are given. Selected problems which have been given in mathematical olympiads or proposed in short lists in IMO's are discussed. In addition, a number of problems proposed by leading mathematicians in the subject are included here. The book also contains new problems with their solutions. The scope of the publication of the present book is to teach mathematical thinking through Geometry and to provide inspiration for both students and teachers to formulate "positive" conjectures and provide solutions.

From the Back Cover:

Problem-Solving and Selected Topics in Euclidean Geometry: In the Spirit of the Mathematical Olympiads contains theorems of particular value for the solution of Olympiad-caliber problems in Euclidean Geometry. Selected geometric problems, which have been given in International Mathematical Olympiads (IMO) or proposed in short lists in IMO, are discussed. Additionally, a number of new problems proposed by leading mathematicians in the subject with their step-by-step solutions are presented. The book teaches mathematical thinking through Geometry and provides inspiration for both students and teachers.

From the Foreword: “...Young people need such texts, grounded in our shared intellectual history and challenging them to excel and create a continuity with the past. Geometry has seemed destined to give way in our modern computerized world to algebra. As with Michael Th. Rassias’ previous homonymous book on number theory, it is a pleasure to see the mental discipline of the ancient Greeks so well represented to a youthful audience.”

– Michael H. Freedman (Fields Medal in Mathematics, 1986)

Sotirios E. Louridas has studied Mathematics at the University of Patras, Greece. He has been an active member of the Greek Mathematical Society for several years both as a problem poser and a coach of the Greek Mathematical Olympiad team. He has authored in Greek, a number of books in Mathematics. 

Michael Th. Rassias has received several awards in mathematical problem-solving competitions including two gold medals at the Pan-Hellenic Mathematical Olympiads of 2002 and 2003 (Athens, Greece), a silver medal at the Balkan Mathematical Olympiad of 2002 (Targu Mures, Romania) and a silver medal at the 44th International Mathematical Olympiad of 2003 (Tokyo, Japan). He holds a Diploma from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the National Technical University of Athens and a Master of Advanced Study in Mathematics from the University of Cambridge. He is currently a PhD student in Mathematics at ETH-Zürich. At the age of 22, he authored the book Problem-Solving and Selected Topics in Number Theory: In the Spirit of the Mathematical Olympiads – Foreword by Preda Mihăilescu (Springer, 2011), ISBN: 978-1-4419-0494-2.
