Problem Solving

This page is about a creative approach to problem solving rather than formal methods of mathematical deduction. I guess the most important thing is not to fear a problem because its difficult or to hurry it. Perhaps maths, physics and computer problems should be tackled with the same approach as crossword or sudoko problems, although not necessarily in a trial-and-error way.
