Aus den Rezensionen
My proposed first sentence
"The author discusses valueless measures in pointless spaces."
―Paul Halmos, I Want to Be a Mathematician, 1985
A reader cannot fail to be struck of the unity of mathematics. … The remarkably attractive book is
If I were to choose one math book to take to a
desert island this one would be a
of small touches. … The story is beautifully told. … The contest was a true success and so is this book.
Strang, MIT. Review in: Science 307 (2005),
if I had a solar-powered laptop on which to try out the codes and ideas!
University of Manchester. Review in: SIAM Review 47 (2005),
The SIAM 100-Digit Challenge
is a wonderful and well-written book full of living mathematics by
lively mathematicians. Anyone … is strongly urged … to plunge in―computer
in hand―to this fine
advertisement for constructive mathematics 21st-century style.
Dalhousie University. Review in: Mathematical Intelligencer 27-4 (2005),
The SIAM 100-Digit Challenge is an
entertaining and valuable book that belongs on the shelf of everyone
who takes numerical computation seriously. Even the story of how the book came
to be is interesting.
IDA Center for Computing Sciences, Maryland. Review in: CiSE 7 (2005),
Perhaps the most significant contribution of this book,
however, is how it demonstrates that a set of
well-chosen problems can serve as basis for introducing a reader to an entire
field. Students can readily
see the motivation for each of the topics that they study.
―David H. Bailey,
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Review in:
Bulletin AMS 42 (2005),
The reading of this book is highly recommended to everyone
interested in computing since the methods
used touch on virtually every major technique of modern numerical analysis.
Université des Sciences et Technologies de Lille. Review in: Numerical
Algorithms 38 (2005),
These problems lead the authors to consider
an amazing diversity of mathematical techniques.
An excellent book.

to the library of anyone who appreciates seeing the variety of ways
that clever people think of when approaching a difficult problem.

review at amazon.com, January 1, 2008.The book is ogranized by problem, not
technique, and so the motivation is apparent before the
theory is introduced. Some of the solutions are so clever they seem almost
