Are there any books COMPLETELY dedicated to magic trick using equations only.
What I mean is, the whole book is nothing but math magic, no other magic tricks of any type? If so, can you please tell me the name of a few?

There are actually quite a few:
Mathemagic by Royal V. Heath The Magical Math Book by Bob Longe SelfWorking Number Magic by Karl Fulves Mathematics, Magic and Mystery by Martin Gardner (or ANYTHING by Martin Garnder!)

Well, Gardner's Encyclopedia of Impromptu Magic isn't strictly mathematical, and of course he's written nonmagic books on mathematics, games, Lewis Carroll... Another good book on math magic is Richard Busch's Number...Please? :pepper:

One book that is usually overlooked by mathemagicians, but is quite useful is "The Magic of Numbers" by Robert Tocquet. It's emphasis is on the oddities of mathematic rather than magic, but a large portion is about simulated mental calculation, trick mathematics, and memorizing numbers. It also contains the fascinating history of both lightning and animal calculators.

Oh yeah...How could I forget? Please add "Mathemagical Magic' by William Simon to the list of great math magic books!

This does not exactly fit your requirements, but Lorayne's The Magic Book has a very good section on math magic.
Peace, Parson

Card Concepts by Mcatier (hope I got the name right)
Horrible layout, horrible descriptions, great choice of mathematical principles for card effects...

Jim Steinmeyer's "Impuzzibilities" is a small collection of mathematical tricks. They are well disguised so the mathematics is not obvious. Recommended.
There are 10 kinds of people: those who understand binary numbers, and those who don't.

Impuzzibilities is a gem. I bought it after seeing lots of recomendations from the Parson.

Harry Lorayne has a new one coming out in February or March called MATHEMATICAL WIZARDRY. Something to look forward to...

Also "Card concepts" from Davenports. Each chapter inroduces a new mathematical idea and shows several card tricks using it.
