At its meeting in April 1990 at the University of Cambridge, the Executive Committee of the International Mathematical Union (IMU) decided that the largely unorganized archives of the Union should be properly arranged and catalogued. Simultaneously, the Executive Committee expressed the wish that a history of the Union should be written [1). As Secretary of the Union, I had proposed that these issues be dis cussed at the Cambridge meeting, but without having had in mind any personal role in the practical execution of such projects. At that time, the papers of the IMU were stored in Zurich, at the Eidgenossische Technische Hochschule, and I saw no reason why they could not remain there. At about this time, Professor K. Chandrasekharan produced a handwritten article titled "The Prehistory of the International Mathematical Union" [2), and it seemed to me that this might serve as the beginning of a more compre hensive history. I had first thought that Tuulikki MakeUiinen, who during eight years as the Office Secretary ofthe IMU had become well acquainted with the Union, would do the arranging of the archives in Zurich. She had a preliminary look at the material there, but it soon became clear that the amount of work required to bring order to it was too great to be accomplished in a few short visits from Helsinki. The total volume of material was formidable.

In July 2009 Germany hosted the 50th International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). For the very first time the number of participating countries exceeded 100, with 104 countries from all continents. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the IMO provides an ideal opportunity to look back over the past five decades and to review its development to become a worldwide event. This book is a report about the 50th IMO as well as the IMO history. A lot of data about all the 50 IMOs are included. We list the most successful contestants, the results of the 50 Olympiads and the 112 countries that have ever taken part. It is impressive to see that many of the world’s leading research mathematicians were among the most successful IMO participants in their youth. Six of them gave presentations at a special celebration: Bollobás, Gowers, Lovász, Smirnov, Tao and Yoccoz. This book is aimed at students in the IMO age group and all those who have interest in this worldwide leading competition for highschool students.

The Mathematical Olypiad books, covering the USA Mathematical Olypiad (USAMO) and the International Mathematical Olypiad (IMO), have been published annually by the MAA American Mathematics Competitions since 1976. This is the sixth volume in that series published by the MAA in its Problem Book series. The IMO is the work mathematics championship for high school students. It takes place annually in a different country each year. The aims of the IMO are (1) to discover, encourage and challenge mathematically gifted young people in all countries; (2) to foster friendships between mathematicians around the world; (3) to create an opportunity for the exchange of information on school syllabi and practice throughout the world. The USAMO and the Team Selection Test (TST) are the last two stages of the selection process for the United states of America IMO team. The preceding examinations are the AMC 10 or AMC12 and the American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME). Participation in the AIME, USAMO, and the TST is by invitation only, based on performance in the preceding exams of the sequence. Through the AMC contests and the IMO, young gifted mathematicians are identified and recognized while they are still in secondary school. Participation in the competitions provides them with the chance to measure themselves against other exceptional students from all over the world. This work was prepared by Zuming Feng, Melanie Matchett Wood, the Leader and Deputy Leader of the 2004 USA IMO team, and by Cecil Rousseau, the chair of the USAMO Committee. In addition to presenting their own carefully written solutions to the problems, Zuming and Melanie provide remarkable solutions developed by the examination committees, contestants, and experts, during or after the contests. They also provide a detailed report of the 2000 2004 USAMO/IMO results and a comprehensive guide to other material that emphasize advances problem-solving. This collection of excellent problems and beautiful solutions is a valuable companion for students who wish to develop their interest in mathematics outside the school curriculum and to deepen their knowledge of mathematics.

Theory of Groups of Finite Order

Author: William Burnside

Publisher: Courier Dover Publications

ISBN: 0486816915

Category: Mathematics

Page: 544

View: 1145

An unabridged republication of the classic 1911 edition, this volume constitutes both a great historical contribution to mathematical literature and a basic reference book in its field. Suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in mathematics as well as historians of mathematics, the introductory treatment was hailed by International Mathematical News as "more easily comprehensible than most other books on the subject," and as "a classic work, extraordinarily rich," by Elemente der Mathematik. After introducing permutation notation and presenting the definition of a group, author William Burnside discusses the simpler properties of groups that are independent of their modes of representation; composition-series of groups; isomorphism of a group with itself; Abelian groups; groups whose orders are the powers of primes; and Sylow's theorem. Permutation groups and groups of linear substitutions receive an extensive treatment; two chapters are devoted to the graphic representation of groups, and the closing chapter examines congruence groups. Forty-five pages of notes at the back of the book offer ample treatment of special topics.

Im Kopf eines Genies – der Bericht von einem mathematischen Abenteuer und der Roman eines sehr erfolgreichen Forschers Cédric Villani gilt als Kandidat für die begehrte Fields-Medaille, eine Art Nobelpreis für Mathematiker. Sie wird aber nur alle vier Jahre vergeben, und man muss unter 40 sein. Er hat also nur eine Chance. Unmöglich! Unmöglich? Fieberhaft macht er sich an die Arbeit. Jetzt erzählt er seine Geschichte, und ihm gelingt das Unglaubliche: Wir werden direkte Zeugen der Denkprozesse eines Mathematikers, und das, ohne die dazugehörigen Formeln verstehen zu müssen. Ein Buch, so einzigartig wie sein Autor.

The International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) is an annual international mathematics competition held for pre-collegiate students. It is also the oldest of the international science olympiads, and competition for places is particularly fierce. This book is an amalgamation of the booklets originally produced to guide students intending to contend for placement on their country's IMO team. See also A First Step to Mathematical Olympiad Problems which was published in 2009. The material contained in this book provides an introduction to the main mathematical topics covered in the IMO, which are: Combinatorics, Geometry and Number Theory. In addition, there is a special emphasis on how to approach unseen questions in Mathematics, and model the writing of proofs. Full answers are given to all questions. Though A Second Step to Mathematical Olympiad Problems is written from the perspective of a mathematician, it is written in a way that makes it easily comprehensible to adolescents. This book is also a must-read for coaches and instructors of mathematical competitions.

International Congresses on Mathematical Education (ICMEs), under the auspices of the International Commission on Mathematical Instruction, are held every four years. Previous Congresses have been held in France (Lyons), England (Exeter), the Federal Republic of Germany (Karlsruhe), and the United States of America (Berkeley). The Fifth International Congress on Mathematical Education (lCME 5) was held in Adelaide, Australia, from August 24-30, 1984. More than 1800 participants from over 70 countries participated in the Congress, while some additional 200 people attended social functions and excursions. The program for ICME 5 was planned and structured by an International Program Committee, and implemented by the National Program Committee in Australia. For the main body of the program, Chief Organisers, assisted by Australian Coordinators, were invited to plan and prepare the individual components of the program which addressed a wide range of topics and interest areas. Each of these teams involved many individuals from around the world in the detailed planning and preparation of the working sessions for their area of program responsibility. For the actual working sessions at the Congress, the smallest group had some 60 members, while the largest had well over 300. In addition to the working sessions, there were three major plenary addresses, several specially invited presentations, and over 420 individual papers in the form of short communications, either as posters or brief talks.
