What is a general expression for the sum of the first n integers, each raised to the mth power, where m is a positive integer? Answering this question will be the aim of the paper We will take the unorthodox approach of presenting the material from the point of view of someone who is trying to solve the problem himself.

A guide to the practical art of plausible reasoning, this book has relevance in every field of intellectual activity. Professor Polya, a world-famous mathematician from Stanford University, uses mathematics to show how hunches and guesses play an important part in even the most rigorously deductive science. He explains how solutions to problems can be guessed at; good guessing is often more important than rigorous deduction in finding correct solutions. I, on Induction and Analogy in Mathematics , covers a wide variety of mathematical problems, revealing the trains of thought that lead to solutions, pointing out false bypaths, discussing techniques of searching for proofs. Problems and examples challenge curiosity, judgment, and power of invention.

Halmos reviewing the book summarised the central thesis of the book thus: ". Polya begins Volume I with a discussion on induction , not mathematical induction , but as a way of guessing new results. This is the well known Goldbach's conjecture. The first problem in the first chapter is to guess the rule according to which the successive terms of the following sequence are chosen: 11, 31, 41, 61, 71, , ,. In the next chapter the techniques of generalization, specialization and analogy are presented as possible strategies for plausible reasoning.

An analogy is a comparison between two objects, or systems of objects, that highlights respects in which they are thought to be similar.

Сьюзан испытала от этих слов странное облегчение. - У него есть охрана. - В общем-то. - Он прячется в укрытии.

Но сейчас, глядя на толпу завсегдатаев, пытающихся попасть в клуб, Беккер не был уверен, что сможет отказаться от дальнейших поисков. Он смотрел на огромную толпу панков, какую ему еще никогда не доводилось видеть. Повсюду мелькали красно-бело-синие прически. Беккер вздохнул, взвешивая свои возможности.

Они плодятся быстрее кроликов. В этом их слабость - вы можете путем скрещивания отправить их в небытие, если, конечно, знаете, что делаете.

Сегодня у меня было ужасное утро. Вчера вечером я скачал файл Танкадо и провел у принтера несколько часов, ожидая, когда ТРАНСТЕКСТ его расколет. На рассвете я усмирил свою гордыню и позвонил директору - и, уверяю тебя, это был бы тот еще разговорчик.

Какая разница, Стратмор никогда не решится выстрелить, пока он прикрыт Сьюзан. Но когда он начал подниматься на следующую ступеньку, не выпуская Сьюзан из рук, произошло нечто неожиданное. За спиной у него послышался какой-то звук. Он замер, чувствуя мощный прилив адреналина. Неужели Стратмор каким-то образом проскользнул наверх.

Ноги Беккера скрылись из виду за поворотом, и Халохот выстрелил, но тут же понял, что выстрел пришелся в пустоту.
