When I've attended math competition discussions, I've often heard people remark "oh, this is a famous problem" or say that it's similar to one. Most of them I've actually never heard of before. ...
I want to study geometry and was looking for some book that has lots of theorems and covers almost all Euclidean geometry that is needed for High School and Maths Olympiads. Thanks.
This is a question about studying for the Putnam examination (and, secondarily, other high-difficulty proof-based math competitions like the IMO). It is not about the history of the competition, the ...
I am seeking an online resource or any book where I can find the questions of International Mathematical Olympiad questions chapter wise eg Number Theory problems grouped together. Like this site ...
Apart from the IMO which is for the younger students, I am looking for competitions which are maybe for undergraduates or graduate students.
If all the training I have right now is Calc 1-3, Linear Algebra and some introduction to set theory/discrete math, what would you recommend focusing on over summer in preparation to Putnam? Real ...
We all know that problems from for example the IMO and the Putnam competition can sometimes have lovely connections to "deeper parts of mathematics". I would want to see such problems here which you ...
