Every mathematician in the world is invited to take part in a unique mathematical contest in which competitors will answer as many challenging mathematical questions as possible. We call it the MATHS QUIZ 2000, and it is a contribution of the CRM (Barcelona) to the celebrations of World Mathematical Year. We are talking about a question-and-answer global and live competition. All the competitors (individuals or small teams) will compete in real time through the Internet. The contest will start at 12 o'clock (midday) Greenwich Mean Time on the 17th of October this year and will last exactly 24 hours, without interruption. Beyond the thrill of the challenge, the winners will be rewarded with two sorts of prizes. The five highest scoring competitors will each receive workstations courtesy of Sun Microsystems, the main sponsor of the competition. On the other hand, to spur on all the players, even those far behind the leaders, we will be giving away throughout the competition a considerable number of book tokens valued at 100 Euros which have been offered by Birkhauser Verlag to be used in the purchase of books from this publisher. So mark the 17th of October in your diaries, find a small group of colleagues, and register for the MATHS QUIZ 2000 at the site:
