A Bibliography of Recreational Mathematics, Volume 2.
Schaaf, William L.
This book is a partially annotated bibliography of books, articles and periodicals concerned with mathematical games, puzzles, tricks, amusements, and paradoxes. Volume 2 follows an original monograph which has gone through three editions. The present volume not only brings the literature up to date but also includes material which was omitted in Volume 1. The book is intended for both the professional and amateur mathematician. This guide can serve as a place to look for source materials and will be helpful to students engaged in research. Many non-technical references are included for the layman interested in mathematics as a hobby. One useful improvement over Volume 1 is that the number of subheadings has been more than doubled. (FL)
