Item description for Arnold's Problems by V. I. Arnold...
Arnold's Problems contains mathematical problems which have been brought up by Vladimir Arnold in his famous seminar at Moscow State University over several decades. In addition, there are problems published in his numerous papers and books.
The invariable peculiarity of these problems was that mathematics was considerednot as a game with deductive reasonings and symbols, but as a part of natural science (especially of physics), i.e. as an experimental science. Many of these problems are at the frontier of research still today and are still open, and even those that are mainly solved keep stimulating new research appearing every year in journals all over the world.
The second part of the book is a collection of comments of mostly Arnold's former students about the current progress in the problems' solution (featuring bibliography inspired by them).
This book will be of great interest to researchers and graduate students in mathematics and mathematical physics.

Arnold's Problems Jul 5, 2004
This book can be recommended for postgraduate students to challenge their knowledge of mathematics. Arnold created the set of these problems during the decades and many of them still does not have any solution. He meant that each student who specilizes in mathematics can and should try to solve some difficult problem. For the most students these problems will be far away from the trivia, but if someone solves one problem they will achive the high level of mathematical qualification.
