Aims, contents and method of the course

This seminar is conceived for students who have fun solving problems that require tricky applications of basic mathematical knowledge and a lot of clever and creative thinking. The proposed exercises stem from many different areas of mathematics, the correct recognition of the applicable theoretical tools represents a big part of the interest but also of the difficulty of the problems and distinguishes them from the classical exercises in introductory seminars.
