From the Preface:

This is the 1st whole compilation of the issues from Moscow Mathematical Olympiads with
solutions of ALL difficulties. it's in response to past Russian decisions: [SCY], [Le] and [GT]. The first
two of those books include chosen difficulties of Olympiads 1–15 and 1–27, respectively, with painstakingly
elaborated recommendations. The publication [GT] strives to gather formulations of all (cf. historic comments) problems
of Olympiads 1–49 and strategies or tricks to so much of them.

For whom is that this publication? The good fortune of its Russian counterpart [Le], [GT] with their a million copies
sold are usually not decieve us: a great deal of the good fortune is because of the truth that the costs of books, especially
text-books, have been increadibly low (< 0.005 of the bottom salary.) Our viewers might be extra limited. However, we deal with it to ALL English-reading lecturers of arithmetic who may recommend the booklet to their students and libraries: we gave comprehensible strategies to ALL difficulties.

Generality is a key worth in clinical discourses and practices. all through background, it has obtained a number of meanings and of makes use of. This choice of unique essays goals to inquire into this variety. via case experiences taken from the heritage of arithmetic, physics and the existence sciences, the ebook offers proof of alternative methods of realizing the final in quite a few contexts.
