Terence Tao is one of the most famous and early mathematicians nowadays. He was the younger medal-winner in the IMO (International Mathematical Olympiad), he won medals in three consecutive years, finally achieving the gold prize.

In this book Tao aims to show the reader various tactics involved in solving mathematical problems at the IMO level, for which he assumes a basic level of mathematics, trying to avoid difficult or less known results or theorems.

A book much more famous in solving problem
