75th William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition

Saturday, December 6, 2014, Grace McCourt, Scott Glorioso, Paul Pernici and Alex Lillich participated in the 75th William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition. The participants of the William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition work on 6 problems from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. and then 6 additional problems from 3 p.m. - 6 p.m. Typically, 50% of the participants who enter this competition nationwide, and in Canada, receive 0 points on it. Based on conversations with the AU participants a couple will receive a non-zero score this year, having solved problem B1, the first problem for the afternoon session. All AU participants gleaned insights on at least one of the problems, therefore, maybe even more will receive a non-zero score. Good job AU participants!
