"Featuring numerous original creations, this book presents an entertaining look at mathematically based card tricks. The effects in each chapter are rated in four key areas: ease of performance, whether any setup is needed, how much mathematics is involved, and how well it appeals to a general audience. In addition, each chapter highlights the effect with the best use of the mathematical principle involved. Three chapters address the growing field of two-person mathemagic, which uses subtle information theory principles to communicate. The text provides relevant mathematical details, suggestions for potential extensions, and an index of mathematical topics cross-referenced to each chapter"-- Provided by publisher.
