  • The Slocum Puzzle Foundation
  • The Slocum Puzzle Foundation was established on August 10, 1993 as a nonprofit public benefit Corporation. It was approved by the State of California and the U.S. Government as a charitable and educational Foundation. The purpose of the Foundation is to educate the public on puzzles, their history, development, and use in various cultures of the world. The Foundation will actively support the use of puzzles for education.
  • The Object Server Home Page (COS)
  • The idea is that you specify a type of combinatorial object, together with specific parameter values, and COS will return to you a list of all such objects. COS can generate permutations, combinations, various types of trees, unlabelled graphs, linear extensions of posets, pentomino puzzle solutions, numerical partitions, and a host of other combinatorial objects.
  • Puzzle People Page
  • Directory of Mechanical Puzzle Collectors. This page will hopefully eventually cover much of the information available in Jerry Slocum's Directory of Puzzle Collectors (subject of course to the permission of the collectors there). It's purpose is to help puzzle collectors find and write to other collectors with similar interests.

  • The Geometry Junkyard
  • These pages contain usenet clippings, web pointers, lecture notes, research excerpts, papers,
    abstracts, programs, problems, and other stuff related to discrete and computational geometry.
    Some of it is quite serious, but I hope much of it is also entertaining. The main criteria for adding
    something here are that it be geometrical (obviously) and that it not fit into my other geometry
    page, Geometry in Action, which is more devoted to applications and less to pure math. I also
    have another page on non-geometrical recreational math.

We wish to foster not only insight, ingenuity, quick thinking, and creativity, but also writing skills and the virtue of perseverance. The USAMTS consists of four rounds, with each round featuring five problems." Problems worth puzzling...
