This seminar is open to everyone at Warwick interested in problem-solving. One of objectives is to select and prepare Warwick's team for the 22d International Mathematical Competition (IMC) that will take place 25 - 31 July 2016 in Bulgaria.
We expect to have six training and selection sessions (all 1-2pm on Wednesdays) as follows:
- 20 Jan in MS.04
Linear algebra handout .
- 3 Feb in B3.03
Inequalities in analysis and number theory .
- 10 Feb in MS.04
- 17 Feb in B3.02
- 24 Feb in B3.02
- 9 Mar in MS.04
Selection test results will be email soon to those to took them. Alternatively, ask Ros.
The Mathematics Department will cover the travel and registration expenses of the selected team. If you would like to be considered for the team, you have to come to as many as possible sessions (ideally to all). Undergraduates (from any department) as well as 4th year students (such as MMath, MASt, and MSc) are eligible provided they have completed at most 4 years of university education by July 2016.
No prior registration is required; just turn up for the first session. No credit will be awarded for taking the seminar.
Further information will be added here in due time. As an extra preparation for the seminar, we recommend solving past problems (available online with solutions) from the following competitions:
- International Mathematical Competition (IMC)
- Putnam Competition
- Vojtech Jarnik Mathematical Competition
