A few days ago, the Ukrainian team once again took part in the European Girls' Mathematical Olympiad international mathematical competition. This year the competition was scheduled from April 9 to April 15 and was to take place in The City. Kutaisi (Georgia).Unfortunately, as last year, the global pandemic has hindered this. Most European countries (namely, they actually make up a larger share of participants) remain with a variety of bans on non-essential travel, and although the organizers considered various options for holding (online, offline, mixed), it was finally decided to hold the competition as last year completely online.Our national team was formed in the autumn according to the results of special qualifying rounds. It includes Lisa Pea, Roksolana Ivanchuk, Sofia Ryabchun (all from Kyiv) and Karolina Susol (Uzhhorod). Yulia Kravchenko and Andriy Aikoushin were the team leaders, as in previous years.Tours of the Olympiad took place on April 11 and 12. Kyiv participants performed the tasks of the Olympiad at the Faculty of Computer Science and Cybernetics of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, and Karolina at home under video surveillance of the heads. In general, the organization of an honest and transparent event was entrusted to local organizers. The organizers from Georgia provided the prepared sets of conditions of tasks, solutions, evaluation schemes, etc. The audit was carried out by the team leaders independently, coordination of work with the international jury this year was not provided, so the assessments set by the managers (in accordance with the evaluation schemes) were final.
It is worth noting that the main text of this year's Olympiad included the task of authorship of Anton Trigub.This is not the first time that tasks from Ukraine fall into the main text of the All-European Olympiad. We hope that one day our tasks will appear on the IMO.In our opinion, this year the tasks of the Olympiad turned out to be difficult, which is confirmed by the generally not very high results of most teams. In particular, gold medals started from the 21st ball with 42. And quite a bit to this result was not enough Roksolani. As a result of the competition, the participants of our team performed as follows
We also publish the conditions of tasks. Day 1 and Day 2
Ukraine took the 5th place in the unofficial team standings (8th, if we take into account non-European teams participating "outside the competition").
The next EGMO Olympiad is due to take place in 2022 in Hungary. We hope that this will be the case!
