This book is addressed to College honor students, researchers, and professors.
It contains 136 original problems published by the author in various scientific journals around the world.
The problems could be used to preparing for courses, exams, and Olympiads in mathematics.
Many of these have a generalized form.
For each problem we provide a detailed solution.
I was a professeur coopérant between 1982-1984, teaching mathematics in French language at Lycée Sidi EL Hassan Lyoussi in Sefrou, Province de Fès, Morocco.
I used many of these problems for selecting and training, together with other Moroccan professors, in Rabat city, of the Moroccan student team for the International Olympiad of Mathematics in Paris, France, 1983.

This article is a case study investigating the following issues:
how well general purpose problem solving methods work on hard mathematical
problems, how much time is required in order to learn enough from the
fields in order to attack such hard problems,
are there easy formulations and treatments of the Clay millennium
prize problems, and what is the sociological response from the
mathemacical community and media to proposed solutions to
hard mathematical problems.
