MODA ready for review

After several rounds of editing and peer-review, I have decided that my book, Mathematical Olympiad Dark Arts, has reached a point where it is suitable for public review. Rather than upload the entire 176-page document in its entirety, I shall instead present it in instalments of one chapter per week.

  • Preface
  • Combinatorics I (enumerative and geometrical combinatorics)
  • Linear algebra
  • Combinatorics II (graph theory)
  • Polynomials
  • Sequences
  • Inequalities
  • Projective geometry
  • Complex numbers
  • Triangle geometry
  • Areal coordinates
  • The Riemann sphere
  • Diophantine equations
  • Conic sections
  • Glossary
  • Further reading
  • Acknowledgements

Please notify me of any errors or omissions, no matter how trivial, so that I can amend them before officially releasing the book.

  1. I just skimmed over “Combinatorics I”, and although I didn’t yet find the time to read it thoroughly, I’m pretty sure MODA is going to become a great book, which might have an impact comparable to the famous “Problem-Solving Strategies” by Arthur Engel (ISBN 9780387982199).

      Thank you! The problems in Engel’s book are very elegant. One of my favourites is ‘prove that three-dimensional space be expressed as the disjoint union of circles’.
