24th - 30th July 2010
American University Main
This year's competition was co-organized by University College
and American University in
It took place in Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria, from the 24th to
the 30th of July, 2010. The competition was for students completing their first,
second, third or fourth year of university education and will consist of 2 Sessions of 5 hours each.
Problems will be from the fields of Algebra, Analysis (Real and Complex), Geometry and Combinatorics.
Over the previous seventeen competitions we have had students from over one hundred and seventy universities from
forty three countries.
This was a residential competition and a condition of participation was that all participating students stay in the Hall of Residence provided by the organisers.
Selection of the Problems
problems were chosen at the Meeting of the Jury from those received
in advance by the President of the Jury, Professor John Jayne.
The students' work was
evaluated by Team Leaders and other Professors and Assistant
Professors using criteria provided by the Jury.
Although this is an individual
event, the Universities traditionally divide their participants into
groups of four each. The number of students in the teams is, however,
not fixed. The professor who accompanies the students is expected to be
a member of the Jury.
