Reviews

“Glaeser's offering is essentially an encyclopedia of applied mathematics problems. … useful resource for anyone searching for interesting applications of various topics in elementary mathematics. … Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates, faculty, and general readers.” (D. S. Larson, Choice, Vol. 55 (11), July, 2018)
“The book is clearly written and is a valuable source for interested readers. This volume is warmly recommended to the graduate students. … Its scope and approach will appeal to instructors and professors in nearly all areas of pure mathematics, mathematical physics, and applied analysis. The clarity and breadth of this book make it a welcome addition to the personal library of every mathematician.” (Teodora-Liliana Rădulescu, zbMATH 1386.00002, 2018)
“All materials are given in a very concise and precise form, showing amazing findings of human mind and offering a fascinating and enjoyable reading … . The book serves to popularization of mathematics among students and can be very interesting and useful to professional researchers as well.” (Stan Lipovetsky, Technometrics, Vol. 60 (2), 2018)
