    Anneli Lax New Mathematical Library
    Volume: 562024; 156 pp
    MSC: Primary 52

    Together with its clear mathematical exposition, the problems in this book take the reader from an introduction to discrete geometry all the way to its frontiers. Investigations start with easily drawn figures, such as dividing a polygon into triangles or finding the minimum number of “guards” for a polygon (“art gallery” problem). These early explorations build intuition and set the stage. Variations on the initial problems stretch this intuition in new directions. These variations on problems together with growing intuition and understanding illustrate the theme of this book: “When you have answered the question, it is time to question the answer.” Numerous drawings, informal explanations, and careful reasoning build on high school algebra and geometry.

    Readership

    High school and undergraduate students interested in mathematics; instructors running summer programs and math circles.
