Ninth Colorado Mathematical Olympiad: April 24, 1992

  • Alexander Soifer


This year we featured a truly international set of problems. Problem 9.4 was contributed by the legendary Paul Erd?os of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. Problem 9.3 was inspired by a problem my friend and the leading Abelian group theorist Laszlo Fuchs of Tulane University mentioned in passing as we strolled down his street in New Orleans (Laszlo was born in Hungary). Problem 9.5 was created by Dr. Pak-Hong Cheung of Hong Kong (who created the first inequality in Problem 9.5(A)) and me (the second inequality and Problem 9.5(B)). The two easy Problems 9.1 and 9.2 were suggested by me.
