I am pleased to announce that you can now download and view any of the (draft) chapters of Mathematical Olympiad Dark Arts. Any comments, corrections or suggestions you send me would be greatly appreciated. I’ll incorporate these into the book before publishing the final revision (probably online here, since I imagine that publishing costs would exceed any revenue from sales).

- 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

I wanted to ask, can I get somewhere whole MODA in one .pdf? It’s a bit annoying to switch file every few pages

I’ll release the full PDF after the reviewing process has finished. The page numbering may change as modifications are made, so I’m reluctant to alter the entire contents and index until it’s completely reviewed.

I would like to my friends in the Factbook will read this article’s quality. And that is why I ask for permission to do so.

You’re welcome to link to this article, not that you require my permission to do so. 🙂

Hi,

If its okay with you, can I ask what software you used to write the book (and draw the diagrams)?

Many thanks.

Oh, I used Wolfram Mathematica 8.

This is a really good book. Well done you! ADOM’S MODA. What a brilliant invention.

Thank you!

I think everything said made a bunch of sense. However, what about

this? what if you typed a catchier title? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your blog, however suppose you added

a headline that makes people desire more? I mean Final chapter of MODA | Complex Projective 4-Space is a little plain.

You ought to glance at Yahoo’s home page and

note how they create article headlines to grab people to click.

You might add a related video or a related pic or two to grab people interested about everything’ve written.

Just my opinion, it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.

Hi nice readding your blog

The “interpolating conic” in the linear algebra section is missing a det.
