I was said that a geometrical method is very useful to solve problems. Do you have any idea? Any book can you suggest me to read?

Thanks.

Well, if "geometrical" includes trigonometry and vectors I have some problems that can be solved easier like that. Also geometrical method is useful in problems with complex numbers (and, yes, I have problems that can be solved easier that way too).

Books - um, a good and complet one that I know is "Complex numbers from A to Z" - Titu Andreescu, Dorin Andrica. - Apr 3rd 2011, 04:33 AMLuyenTDHGeometrical methods
Thanks for Veileen's soon comments.

By chance, do you know about the Titu's lemma? - Apr 3rd 2011, 04:39 AMveileen
"Titu's lemma" Do you refer at that lemma that can be deduced from Cauchy's inequality? If so, yes, I know ^^

Equality if and only if

Demonstration:

(Cauchy's inequality)

Let and , then:

which is exactly Titu's inequality.
