Mathematical Snapshots - H. Steinhaus. A catalog of selected dover books in science and mathematics. Professor Steinhaus explains the mathematics and his fine figures and excellent photographs are immensely helpful in understanding what he has presented. He does raise some questions the answers to which may be within the scope of most readers but the reader is warned that some answers have thus far eluded the efforts of the greatest mathematicians. 1.

The Scottish Book from the Lwów School of Mathematics, which Steinhaus contributed to and probably saved during World War II. In September 1939 after Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union both invaded and occupied Poland, as a fulfillment of the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact they had signed earlier, Lwów initially came under Soviet occupation.

“What does a mathematician do?” someone once asked the author, and from that simple inquiry sprang this entertaining and informative volume. Designed to explain and demonstrate mathematical phenomena through the use of photographs and diagrams, Dr. Steinhaus’s thought-provoking exposition ranges from simple puzzles and games to more advanced problems in mathematics.For this revised and enlarged edition, the author added material on such wide-ranging topics as the psychology of lottery players, the arrangement of chromosomes in a human cell, new and larger prime numbers, the fair division of a cake, how to find the shortest possible way to link a dozen locations by rail, and many other absorbing conundrums.This appealing volume reflects the author’s longstanding concern with demonstrating the practical and concrete applications of mathematics as well as its theoretical aspects. It not only clearly and convincingly answers the question asked of Dr. Steinhaus but also offers readers a fascinating glimpse into the world of numbers and their uses.

For better or worse, this is exactly what it claims to be - snapshots of various concepts and tricks in mathematics. The ideal reader will be supplying proofs for each quick sentence, I didn't quite live up to this. The very definition of an active, rather than passive, read.

Mathematical Snapshots is a wonderful excursion into the mind of a mathematician. It answers a question that was asked of the author "You claim to be a mathematician; well, what does one do all day when one is a mathematician?" This book explores games, the computation of shortest paths, why two soap bubbles blown from the same pipe are different sizes, how to pursue another boat on the open water, how to color maps, the simplest forms of solid objects, mobius strips, where to locate schools, the ideal musical scale, and many, many others. Each topic is presented in a short, concise paragraph along with a diagram or picture of explanation. The author asks the reader to supply answers and reasoning. It is readily readable by those with mathematical inclination (even if they can no longer `push' the numbers) and provides hours of enjoyment and expansion of the mind.

It's good that we still can buy this book. Hugo Steinhaus was a great mathematician and it's still a nice time to follow his ideas.
