Magical Mathematics reveals the secrets of fun-to-perform card tricksa€”and the profound mathematical ideas behind thema€”that will astound even the most accomplished magician. Persi Diaconis and Ron Graham provide easy, step-by-step instructions for each trick, explaining how to set up the effect and offering tips on what to say and do while performing it. Each card trick introduces a new mathematical idea, and varying the tricks in turn takes readers to the very threshold of todaya€™s mathematical knowledge. Diaconis and Graham tell the storiesa€”and reveal the best tricksa€”of the eccentric and brilliant inventors of mathematical magic. The book exposes old gambling secrets through the mathematics of shuffling cards, explains the classic street-gambling scam of three-card Monte, traces the history of mathematical magic back to the oldest mathematical tricka€”and much more.They can answer in 2 A— 2 A— 2 = 8 ways, so an eight-card deck can be used.
