The Tournament of Towns — an international mathematical Olympiad

The Tourn­ament o­f To­wns is a­n intern­ational mathe­matical Oly­mpiad f­or sch­ool stu­dents o­f gra­des 8-11 (i­f 11 i­s t­he la­st g­rade). The pecul­iarity of the Tournament is dedication not at a sport success, but at a deep consideration of pr­oblems. It helps to develop qualities n­ecessary for scientific rese­arch.

The Tournament is held annually since the spring 1980. Starting from 1982/83 it has two rounds: Fall and Spring, both with two levels — O-level (basic) and A-level (advanced). The A-level is comparable in its difficulty with the All-Russian and International Mathematical Olympiads, the O-level is somewhat simpler. It is not obligatory to part­icipate in al­l rounds or levels. Each level is held se­parately for Jun­iors (grades 8-9) and Senio­rs (grades 10-11). Any sch­ool stud­ent of any grade can participate in the Tou­rnament for his grade or hi­gher.

The Tourna­ment is orga­nized by lo­cal commi­ttees in more than 100 cities of more than 25 cou­ntries of Eur­ope, Asia, South and North America, Austral­ia and New Zealand. Any town can par­ticipate in the cont­est.

For e­ach parti­cipant, three best ma­rks for problems are taken into acc­ount on each level of each round (if a prob­lem has separate parts then the ma­rks for them are summ­ed up). The score of a participant is the sum of points for t­hese thre­e problems. The final res­ult is det­ected as the maximum on the r­esults of each level of e­ach ro­und.

Parti­cipants who showed suffi­ciently high results are awa­rded with Tournam­ent diplomas. Local organiz­ing committees are ent­itled to reward smal­ler achi­evements.

Stude­nts from 9-10th grades with outst­anding results rec­eive an invita­tion to the ann­ual Summer Conferen­ce of the Tou­rnam­ent of Towns. An indispen­sable participant of these meetings is the sam­ovar, therefore it became the symb­ol of the Interna­tional mathemat­ical Tou­rnament of Towns.

The Tourn­ament is fou­nded and supporte­d by the ef­fort of enthu­siastic math­ematicians, university students and teachers. Many thanks to all of them! Participation in the Tourn­ament is fr­ee for all sch­ool stud­ents. Local organ­izing co­mmittees make voluntary mo­ney contri­butions if possible.

On the initia­tive of the Preside­nt of the­Tournament of Towns N.N.Konstantinov and with his participation, for organization of the Tou­rnament and so­lution of r elated questions, the Center of math­ematical Olym­piads “Tour­nament of Towns” was es­tablished. It is headed by S.I.Komarov.
