ATOM Volume IX: The CAUT Problems

This book contains over sixty problems that were originally published in the CAUT Bulletin, published by the Canadian Association of University Teachers. The Canadian Mathematical Society is grateful to the Canadian Association of University Teachers for granting permission for these problems to be included in this ATOM volume. The reader might ask how mathematical problems wound up in a publication whose articles generally deal with matters of university governance, academic policies and conditions of employment of the faculty and librarians of Canada’s colleges and universities.

Most of these problems are not original; the ideas come from a number of sources, some of them school texts. New problems appear on the scene regularly, and a couple of them are included here. I hope that readers enjoy trying their hand at them.
