When selecting mathematics books for a library, one. important criterian is to maintain a balance in the various areas of mathematics. That is, a library. should contain books in as many areas of mathematics as possible such as: Mathematical Recreation, Com-putor s, Arithmetic, Algebra, Euclidean Geometry, Non-Euclidean Geometry, Topology.

Number game, any of various puzzles and games that involve aspects of mathematics. Mathematical recreations comprise puzzles and games that vary from naive amusements to sophisticated problems, some of which have never been solved. They may involve arithmetic, algebra, geometry, theory of numbers, graph theory, topology, matrices, group theory, combinatorics (dealing with problems of.

COXETER-LIKE COMPLEXES ERIC BABSON AND VICTOR REINER Abstract. Motivated by the Coxeter complex associated to a Coxeter system (W;S), we introduce a simplicial regular cell com-plex ( G;S) with a G-action associated to any pair (G;S) where G is a group and S is a nite set of generators for G which is minimal with respect to inclusion.

The first edition of W.W. Rouse Ball's Mathematical Recreations and Essays appeared in 1892; it soon became a classic, largely because of its scholarly approach. After passing through 10 editions it was revised by the British professor H.S.M. Coxeter (Coxeter, H.S.M.) in 1938; it is still a standard reference.
Donald Coxeter continued to produce new editions of Rouse Ball's book. I ( EFR ) remember a long discussion I had with Donald Coxeter in Toronto in September 1976 about the his revisions of Rouse Ball's 'Mathematical Recreations and Essays'. We reproduce below extracts from reviews of some of the many editions of Rouse Ball's books.
Comments. The Ancient problem of squaring the circle led to a problem in measure theory which asks if a disc and a square of equal area are equi-decomposable, i.e. if the disc can be decomposed into a finite number of disjoint subsets which can be reassembled to form a square, .Cf.
