*Mathematics is the study of pattern and structure. Roulette, craps, blackjack, backgammon, poker, bridge, lotteries and horse races are considered here in a way that reveals their mathematical aspects. This book attempts to gather all the problems and solutions appearing on the IMO and contains a grand total of problems.*

## Popularization of Probability Theory and Statistics in School Through Intellectual Competitions

These are some handouts I've written over the years. The Math and Problem Solving sections of my personal blog might also be of interest. See also Recommendations for other authors I like, as well as my geometry book for a comprehensive textbook in Euclidean geometry. See also Problems for contest papers. But note to compile these documents in LaTeX, you will need my personal style file evan. Because this style file evolves over time, your output might look a little different than the PDF's attached here. I suggest reading through the beginner's page first.

In China, lots of excellent students who are good at maths take an active part in various maths contests and the best six senior high school students will be selected to form the IMO National Team to compete in the International Mathematical Olympiad. In the past ten years China's IMO Team has achieved outstanding results - they have won the first place almost every year. This book is part of the Mathematical Olympiad Series which discusses several aspects related to maths contests, such as algebra, number theory, combinatorics, graph theory and geometry. This book will, in an interesting problem-solving way, explain what probability theory is: its concepts, methods and meanings; particularly, two important concepts - probability and mathematical expectation briefly expectation - are emphasized. It consists of 65 problems, appended by exercises and their answers.

China has taken first place most of the last ten years. The reader does not require an IMO future to find this book useful. It is an introductory probability text that can serve as an adjunct to a more detailed text, or a collection of classroom capsules also touching on algebra, number theory, combinatorics, graph theory, and geometry. Sixty-five short chapters make up the main content. At least to Western readers, this collection of probability problems, nicely arranged in increasing difficulty, has an exotic flavor. Inspiration and sources often come from Chinese culture: oral history and opera, legend and literature. Even Chinese dice play leads to problem setups not seen in a typical Western text.

Сьюзан пронзила ужасная мысль. Этой своей мнимой перепиской Танкадо мог убедить Стратмора в чем угодно. Она вспомнила свою первую реакцию на рассказ Стратмора об алгоритме, не поддающемся взлому.
