The 13th ITYM is being co-organised, in particular, by the Belarusian State University and the French Association Animath.


It will take place online in October 6-17, 2021.

Welcome to the official website of the International Tournament of Young Mathematicians!

It is a team competition for high school students from all over the world. Each team should consist of 4 to 6 students, guided and accompanied by one or two adult team leaders.

Its purpose is to stimulate interest in mathematics and its applications, to develop scientific thinking, communication skills and teamwork.

The ITYM developed out of national tournaments in some countries, especially from Eastern Europe.

In contrast to olympiads, the problems for the tournament are published several months in advance and contain parts with no known solution.

During the tournament the participating students present their results in a kind of research debate involving Reporter, Opponent, Reviewer and Observer.

The ITYM is supported by leading universities of Europe and has allowed collaboration between professional scientists and youngsters. Thousands of students, teachers and scientists from 20 countries have already benefited from the tournament.

Due to Covid-19, the 13th edition of the ITYM will be held online in October.

The problems were published on June 21 (updates are possible).

Registration is open until September 1.

The timetable is preliminary.

PROBLEMS

PROBLEMS 2021 (PDF)

Version 2, July 2

Problems for the ITYM are suggested by contemporary mathematicians.

Each problem contains parts with no known solution.

Each problem is accessible to high school students, elementary research can be done.

Some problems are advanced and require learning new theory.

The original problems come from fields of algebra, analysis, combinatorics, number theory, geometry and probability.

It is not compulsory to send solutions to all the problems. During the ITYM, every team will present at most three of them.

The official list of problems has been released in June 2021.

Quiz is a written test of 2.5 hours. Its aim is to check team’s understanding of the problems of the ITYM, competence in involved mathematical fields and solving skills.

During the rounds and the finals, the teams play the four following roles:

Reporter presents the main ideas and results obtained while solving the problem.

Opponent analyses the solution of the reporter and points to inaccuracy and errors in the paper and the presentation.

Reviewer evaluates both the performance of the reporter and the work of the opponent.

Observer only makes important remarks missed by all others.
