Mathematical ExcaliburIn 1994, the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) was held
in Hong Kong. In January of that year, we began to post a math
newsletter called Mathematical Excalibur on our department webpage.
You can find all the issues up to now in the box below.
In each issue, you can find a math olympiad paper, an article
or two on math olympiad topics and a problem corner. Over the years,
we received many contributions from readers all over the world. Many
readers submitted brilliant solutions to the problem corner. We thank
each of them whole-heartedly.
Other than Math Excalibur, we also started an undergraduate math
competition open to all undergraduates of our university. For more
details, click http://www.math.ust.hk/ug/competition/ .
The winners were high-achievers who often have taken our advanced
stream courses. Each year a number of them participate in exchange
program (see the webpage http://www.math.ust.hk/ug/exchange.php ) and
go on to top graduate programs oversea (see the lower part of the
webpage http://www.math.ust.hk/ug/prospect.php ). Many of them
received big scholarships and graduated with the highest academic
honour. For our university, our medium of instruction is English
and we are very international with students from all over the world.

Our School of Science is offering scholarship for IMO/APMO
medalists. Please see the link http://science.ust.hk/scholarship_for_olympiad_medalists.html
