Little Mathematics Library – Remarkable Curves (Persian)

In the Little Mathematics Library series we will see a Persian version of the book Remarkable Curves, by A. I. Markushevich.

Markushevich-Remarkable-Curves-LML-Perisan copy 2

This book has been written mainly for high school students, but it will also be helpful to anyone studying on their own whose mathematical education is confined to high school mathematics. The book is based on a lecture I gave to Moscow schoolchildren of grades 7 and 8 (13 and 14 years old).

In preparing the lecture for publication I expanded the material,while at the same time trying not to make the treatment any less accessible. The most substantial addition is Section 13 on the ellipse, hyperbola and parabola viewed as conic sections.

For the sake of brevity most of the results on curves are given with-
out proof, although in many cases their proofs could have been given
in a form that readers could understand.

The book was translated to Persian by S. Valeri and was first published by Mir in 1983.
