Ninety six university teams from all over the world participated in the main mathematics competition of the year. Typically, IMC takes place in Blagoevgrad (Bulgaria), but this year it was decided to hold the competition online due to the pandemic.

There were also changes to the number of tasks (eight instead of the traditional 10), reviews of solutions, and the appeals process. Nevertheless, these changes proved to be no obstacle for the joint team of the HSE University Moscow’s Faculty of Computer Science (FCS) and Faculty of Mathematics (FM), which won seven medals, with four golds, two silvers, and one bronze.

The winners:

  • Daniil Ivanik (FCS, first year of studies) – First Prize;
  • Nikita Kalinin (FCS, second year of studies) – First Prize;
  • Maxim Urmanov (FCS, third year of studies) – First Prize;
  • Alexander Shlimovich (FM, third year of studies) – First Prize;
  • Rodion Zaytsev (FM, third year of studies) – Second Prize;
  • Danila Ivanov (FCS, first year of studies) – Second Prize;
  • Karim Shamazov (FCS, second year of studies) – Third Prize;
  • Alexander Latyshev (FCS, second year of studies) – Honourable Mention.

In addition, two third-year bachelor’s students from the Faculty of Mathematics, Evgeniya Akhmedova and Renata Valieva, participated in the competition outside the joint team, winning Second Prize medals.

Students of the HSE St. Petersburg School of Physics, Mathematics, and Computer Science showed excellent results in the individual competition. Vladislav Epifanov, a senior of Applied Mathematics and Information Science undergraduate programme, repeated his last year's result, winning the First Prize. His classmates, Nikita Andreev and Makxim Surkov, earned Second Prize medals. Vasily Alferov, a first year Master's student of Software Development and Data Analysis, and Vladislav Mosin, a senior in Applied Mathematics and Information Science programme, were awarded Third Prize medals.

HSE Scientists Unveil New Findings Regarding Stability of Communication Systems

Researchers from the International Laboratory of Dynamical Systems and Applications at the HSE Campus in Nizhny Novgorod have discovered that the use of systems with hyperbolic solenoid attractors and repellers can lead to issues in the transmission of communication signals. The findings of this study have been published in Results in Mathematics. The research was financed by a substantial grant from the Russian Government as part of the 'Science and Universities' National Project and a further grant from the Russian Science Foundation.
