The foreign Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) has inside its virtually 50-year-old background turn into the most well-liked and prestigious festival for high-school scholars drawn to arithmetic. merely six scholars from each one partaking nation are given the distinction of partaking during this pageant each year. The IMO represents not just an excellent chance to take on attention-grabbing and tough arithmetic difficulties, it additionally bargains a fashion for top institution scholars to degree up with scholars from the remainder of the world.

The IMO has sparked off a burst of creativity between lovers in developing new and fascinating arithmetic difficulties. In an exceptionally stiff pageant, basically six difficulties are selected every year to seem at the IMO. the whole variety of difficulties proposed for the IMOs as much as this element is spectacular and, as a complete, this number of difficulties represents a worthy source for all highschool scholars getting ready for the IMO.

Until now it's been nearly very unlikely to acquire an entire choice of the issues proposed on the IMO in booklet shape. "The IMO Compendium" is the results of a 12 months lengthy collaboration among 4 former IMO contributors from Yugoslavia, now Serbia and Montenegro, to rescue those difficulties from previous and scattered manuscripts, and convey the last word resource of IMO perform difficulties. This publication makes an attempt to assemble all of the difficulties and recommendations showing at the IMO, in addition to the so-called "short-lists", a complete of 864 difficulties. additionally, the booklet includes 1036 difficulties from a number of "long-lists" through the years, for a grand overall of 1900 problems.

In brief, "The IMO Compendium" is the last word selection of not easy high-school-level arithmetic difficulties. it is going to be a useful source, not just for high-school scholars getting ready for arithmetic competitions, yet for a person who loves and appreciates math.
