By Hans-Dietrich Gronau, Hanns-Heinrich Langmann, Dierk Schleicher

In July 2009 Germany hosted the fiftieth foreign Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). For the first actual time the variety of engaging nations handed a hundred, with 104 international locations from all continents. Celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the IMO offers an incredible chance to appear again during the last 5 a long time and to study its improvement to turn into a global occasion. This ebook is a record concerning the fiftieth IMO in addition to the IMO background. loads of information approximately the entire 50 IMOs are incorporated. We checklist the main winning contestants, the result of the 50 Olympiads and the 112 international locations that experience ever taken half. it truly is notable to determine that a few of the world’s prime examine mathematicians have been one of the such a lot winning IMO contributors of their adolescence. Six of them gave shows at a different get together: Bollobás, Gowers, Lovász, Smirnov, Tao and Yoccoz. This publication is aimed toward scholars within the IMO age workforce and all those that have curiosity during this around the globe top festival for high school students.

Semisimpliziale algebraische Topologie

In diesem Buch werden einige Gebiete der algebraischen Topologie, die guy heute größtenteils zum klassischen Bestand rechnet, mit semi­ simplizialen Methoden in einheitlicher Weise dargestellt. Der Begriff der semisimplizialen Menge ist dabei von grundlegender Bedeutung. Er wurde um 1950 von EILENBERG und ZILBER bei der Untersuchung der singulären Homologietheorie geprägt.

In all, we had to keep more than 1000 people updated on what was going on. The Daily News was produced in three stages: first the editorial content was assembled by Wilfried Kurth and Stephanie Schiemann; then in the middle of the night the information was put together in an attractive format by Marcel Oliver; and finally it was printed and distributed early in the morning by Anke Allner. Reading the Daily News again after the IMO brings back lively memories of our exciting time in Bremen. 1 National Teams ALB Leader Deputy Contestants ALG Leader Deputy Contestants ARG Leader Deputy Contestants ARM Leader Deputy Contestants Albania Fatmir Hoxha Artur Baxhaku Andi Reçi, Tedi Aliaj, Ornela Xhelili, Arlind Gjoka, Niko Kaso, Ridgers Mema Algeria Abed-Seddik Bouchoucha Ali Atia Lamia Attouche, Hacen Zelaci, Oussama Guessab, Kacem Hariz, Argentina Patricia Fauring Flora Gutierrez Germán Stefanich, Alfredo Umfurer, Iván Sadofschi, Federico Cogorno, Ariel Zylber, Miguel Maurizio Armenia Nairi Sedrakyan Koryun Arakelyan Anna Srapionyan, Nerses Srapionyan, Vahagn Kirakosyan, Vahagn Aslanyan, Hayk Saribekyan, Vanik Tadevosyan 5 Participants 49 ALB ALG ARG ARM 50 AUS 5 Participants Australia Leader Deputy Contestants Observer A AUT Leader Deputy Contestants AZE Leader Deputy Contestants BGD Leader Deputy Contestants Observer C Angelo Di Pasquale Ivan Guo Aaron Wan Yau Chong, Andrew Elvey Price, Stacey Wing Chee Law, Alfred Liang, Dana Ma, Sampson Wong Hans Lausch, Ian Roberts Austria Robert Geretschläger Walther Janous Felix Dräxler, Adrian Fuchs, Pfannerer, Valerie Roitner Johannes Hafner, Clemens Müllner, Stephan Azerbaijan Fuad Garayev Jafar Jafarov Ilgar Ramazanli, Elvin Aliyev, Zulfu Aslanli, Altun Shukurlu, Subhan Rustamli, Emil Jafarli Bangladesh Mahbub Alam Majumdar A A Munir Hasan Samin Riasat, Nazia Naser Chowdhury, Tarik Adnan Moon, Haque Muhammad Ishfaq, Kazi Hasan Zubaer, Pranon Rahman Khan Jesmin Akter, Md.

Possible sanctions include the disqualification of an individual Contestant or an entire team from the competition. The decision of the Jury will be final. 7. 1. Each problem will be allocated a score out of a maximum of seven points. 2. Prior to coordination, Contestants’ solutions will be assessed by Leaders and Deputy Leaders in accor-dance with the marking schemes prepared under the direction of the Chief Coordinator appointed by Bildung und Begabung and discussed and agreed upon at the meeting of the Jury.

This defines n(x) uniquely up to sign, and orientability of S means that one can define n(x) continuously on all of S. Now n(x) is a point on the unit sphere S2 ⊂ R3 ; this defines a smooth map G : S → S2 , x → n(x). This map is known as the Gauss map. The Gaussian curvature of S at x, denoted κ (x), is the ratio by which the Gauss map expands (signed) areas. On any flat surface, the Gauss map is constant, so the curvature is zero.
