The William Lowell Putnam Mathematics Competition is a North American math contest for college students, organized by the Mathematical Association of America (MAA).

Each year on the first Saturday in December, several thousand US and Canadian students spend 6 hours (in two sittings) trying to solve 12 problems.

This collection of problems from the William Lowell Putnam Competition is unlike the two previous volumes: it places the problems in the context of important mathematical themes. The authors highlight connections to other problems and to more advanced topics.

It will appeal to students, teachers and anyone interested in problem solving.5/5(8). The William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition Problems and Solutions Gerald L. Alexanderson, Leonard F. Klosinski, and Loren C.
