**Geometry Unbound**

by Kiran S. Kedlaya

2006**Number of pages**: 142

**Description**:

The original text underlying this book was a set of notes for the Math Olympiad Program, the annual summer program to prepare U.S. high school students for the International Mathematical Olympiad. The original notes were intended to bridge the gap between the knowledge of Euclidean geometry of American IMO prospects and that of their counterparts from other countries. They included a large number of challenging problems culled from Olympiad-level competitions from around the world. In revising the old text, author attempted to usher the reader from Euclidean geometry to the gates of "geometry" as the term is defined by modern mathematicians, using the solving of routine and nonroutine problems as the vehicle for discovery.
