The AoPSWiki is hosted for free by the Art of Problem Solving (AoPS), but requires both hardware and significant time in management. This article describes how to link books in a way that helps AoPS fund operation of the AoPSWiki.


Linking to books found at Amazon.com

When linking to a book relevant to a particular topic, please use the AoPS Amazon Partnership link template:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0471135712/artofproblems-20

The only part of this link that changes from book to book is the book's 10-digit ISBN number. In the example above, that number is 0471135712. This number can be found in the URL or on the page of any book listed at Amazon.


You can create a full link and book-listing by slapping square brackets around the link and title as follows:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0471135712/artofproblems-20 The Art and Craft of Problem Solving by Paul Zeitz, former coach of the U.S. math team.


This link will appear as follows:

The Art and Craft of Problem Solving by Paul Zeitz, former coach of the U.S. math team.

When a user visits Amazon through that link and buys the book, AoPS receives 5% of the price of that book. While such book links do not completely defray the cost of the AoPSWiki, they certainly help!

When you see links to books in a different format, please help us by replacing those links.
