2017年美国大学生数学建模竞赛通知

2017年美国大学生建模竞赛(MCM/ICM)时间定于2017119—23日,每个队伍可以从六个题目中任意选择一题且只能选择一题,作答并提交成果。

    MCM问题A(连续)

    MCM问题B(离散)

    MCM问题C(数据见解)

    ICM问题D(运筹学/网络科学)

    ICM问题E(环境科学)

    ICM问题F(政策)

参加美国数学及应用联合会(COMAP)举办的大学生数学建模竞赛(MCM)可以将理论知识转化为实践。以数学作为一门学科进行研究,可能要追溯到毕达哥拉斯时期,但是,近千年来,数学一直是人们日常生活中所必备的技能。因此,先贤们发现数学的奥秘就是为了使人类可以更好的理解和管理我们的世界。

你能从中获得什么?MCM是一个可以挑战你的脑力、解决现实数学问题、并能在国际舞台上得到认可的机会。通过团队合作来发展你的人际交往能力,这是一个绝好的机会。这也是一个令人印象深刻的简历证书和成为你申请实习的优势。更吸引人的是:美国最强的两个团队可能获得高达10000美元的Sigma奖学金,以及更多的优势。

你的学校能从中获得什么?MCM可以使你的学校被国际认可,以及可以获得成为COMAP第32届国际活动会员的机会。准备有意义在于帮助贵校解决现实世界中的问题, 制定政策以及控制财政支出。除此之外,为了你所在的学校未来的蓝图,有更多的动力和理由,来申请更多应用的课程。

COMAP的数学建模竞赛(MCM)的赛题均源于现实世界的问题。在比赛中,你对于问题的研究、分析以及如何运用你的聪明才智起了主导的作用,当然,比赛的时间和运气等因素也会有影响。你准备好了吗?

数学建模竞赛(MCM是一个面向于高中生和大学生的国际竞赛。它对学生团队的阐明、分析并提出开放式问题的解决办法是一项极大的挑战。大赛吸引了世界各地超过900个参赛机构的学生和指导老师。

交叉学科的数学建模竞赛(ICM),是数学建模竞赛(MCM)的延伸。它旨在提升和促进参赛者在解决交叉学科问题和书面表达的能力。

奖励或证书

TwoSigma 奖学金将奖励给最强的两个美国参赛队,每队10000美元,9000美元奖励给队员,1000美元奖励给学校代表。获奖名单将于2017年4月公布。

获奖结果公布后,每个成功参赛队伍的队员和指导老师将会收到一份参赛的证书。你可以登陆美赛官网,通过用户名登陆里面的打印证书链接查看和打印你们团队的证书。所有的国际参赛队伍仅仅会收到一个电子版证书(PDF版)。而美国的参赛队伍会在结果公布的数周后收到你们团队的纸质版证书。

MCM奖(ABC题

Ben Fusaro 奖将入围决赛特别是原创性强的论文,被选为特等提名奖。

Frank R. Giordano奖开设于2012年,它是为纪念指导美赛20年的Brig. Gen. (ret) Frank Giordano教授设立的。这个奖项授予那些数学模型有实际应用的参赛队。

ICM奖项(D,EF题)

Leonhard Eule奖将颁发给由ICM 的D题资深评阅人挑选的队伍。评选标准是:

    1)属于O 、F、M奖等级;

    2)模型的创意性与创新性明显;

    3)表达出对交叉学科良好的理解力。该奖项是为了表彰18世纪的瑞士的应用数学家Swiss,他因研究应用内容渊博、著作较多、和在数学与交叉学科的杰出贡献而闻名。

Rachel Carson奖是为了纪念一位美国的自然资源保护论者,他的工作跨越了许多与当地环境和全球环境有关的学科,他的著作《寂静的春天》引发世界的环保运动。这个奖由ICM 的E题的资深评阅人选出,颁发给在模型中应用科学理论与数据卓越的队伍。

Vilfredo Pareto(1848.7.15-1923.8.19)是一位意大利学者,建模专家,问题解决专家。他在不同时期以工程师、社会学家、经济学家、政治学家、数学家和哲学家等不同身份对学术界做出了重大贡献。ICM设立Pareto奖是为了表彰他在策略类建模问题(ICM的F题)的建树和解决著名社会科学问题所产生的影响。尤其是这个奖项, 资深评阅人试图寻找最好的模型的论文,更具活力和挑战性的上下文人文要素,此类因素可以使此类社科类模型很好的被简化及细化。

运筹学和管理科学研究所(INFORMS)是世界上拥有运筹学(OR)、管理科学(MS)和分析等领域专业人员最大的社会群体。INFORMS早已认识到涉及的本科学生和指导教师在数学建模的问题,这些问题包含许多通过其成员看到了现代元素的建模过程的重要性。 MCM / ICM体现了这些特点。因此,自MCM/ICM成立以来,INFORMS一直是MCM/ICM的积极支持者。

INFORMS从每个六个问题(A,B,C,D,E,F )中精心挑选一个优秀的团队作为INFORMS优秀奖团队,该团队的建模和分析可以最佳例证特有风格和内容体现在其成员的专业实践。每个学生都会收到从目前INFORMS主席的祝贺信、免费的运筹学学生会员一年和个人的现金奖励。各相关指导老师也会收到从当前的一封信和赞赏INFORMS总裁,提供一年免费的访问获得INFORMS全套杂志的许可权。

工业数学与应用学会(SIAM)将会从每个MCM问题中选出一个优秀的队伍作为SIAM奖的获得者。

奖项说明

学生队伍成员:

每个获奖团队的队员都会得到500美元的现金奖励,和三个一年期的SIAM学生会员资格。SIAM将会报销队伍成员650美元的国内旅途费或者800美元的国际旅途费。而由官方比赛的裁判从非获奖队中决选出一队作为杰出队伍,该队可获得SIAM一年的学生会员资格。

指导老师:

 

本机构制作了合适的证书将给予获奖团队的指导老师

美国数学协会(MAA)将从每个问题的一个优秀的团队,为MCM作为MAA的优胜奖。获胜团队的每位学生成员将收到一份证书。 MAA将部分报销团队旅途费用参加Math Fest会议,使他们可以提出他们的论文。

The Institute forOperations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS) is the largestsociety in the world for professionals in the field of operations research(OR), management science (MS), and analytics. INFORMS has long recognized theimportance of involving undergraduate students and faculty in an unscriptedprocess of mathematical modeling whose problems contain many of the modernelements seen by its membership. The MCM/ICM exemplifies these characteristics.Consequently, INFORMS has been an active supporter of the MCM/ICM since itsinception. 
INFORMS carefully selects and designates a single Outstanding team from each ofthe six problems - A, B, C, D, E, F - as an INFORMS Outstanding winning teamwhose modeling and analyses best exemplify the style and content reflected inits membership's professional practice. Each student receives a letter ofcongratulations from the current INFORMS President, a complimentary one-year INFORMSstudent membership, and an individual cash award. Each associated facultyadvisor receives a letter of congratulations and appreciation from the currentINFORMS President, along with complimentary one-year access to the full suiteof award-winning INFORMS journals.

The Society forIndustrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) will designate one Outstanding teamfrom each MCM problem as a SIAM winner.

Description of theAward
Student Team Members:
Each student member of the winning team will receive a cash award of $500 andthree one-year student memberships in SIAM. Team members’ travel expenses willbe reimbursed by SIAM up to $650 for domestic travel or $800 for internationaltravel. A one-year student membership in

SIAM will be given to each member ofnon-winning teams judged as "Outstanding" by the official contestjudges.
Faculty Adviser:
A suitable certificate for the home institutions will be given to the facultyadvisers of the winning teams

The Mathematical Association of America(MAA) will designate one Outstanding team from each problem for the MCM as aMAA winner. Each student member of the winning team will receive a certificate.MAA will partial reimburse teams travel expenses to Math Fest so that they maypresent their paper.
