    https://www.comap.com/undergraduate/contests/mcm
    No password is needed to view the problems. Simply go to the contest web site at or after 5 p.m. EST on Thursday, February 4, 2021 and you will see  a link to view the problems.

  2. The contest problems will also become available for teams to view precisely at 4:50PM EST on Thursday February 4, 2021 on the following  mirror sites:
         http://www.comap-math.com/mcm/index.html
         http://www.mathismore.net/mcm/index.html
         http://www.mathportals.com/mcm/index.html
         http://www.immchallenge.org/mcm/index.html

    If you cannot access any of the sites, there may be a problem with your local Internet connection. Contact your local Internet service provider to resolve the issue.

  3. Each registered team may choose any one of the six problem choices and should submit a solution to only one problem.
              • MCM problems are Problem A, Problem B or Problem C.
              • ICM problems are Problem D, Problem E or Problem F.

  4. Teams may use any inanimate source of data, materials, computers, software, references, websites, books, etc. Teams should reference all sources used using footnotes, endnotes, or in-line documentation, and include an associated reference list citing all sources.

  5. Teams may not seek help from any person outside of team members as delineated in the Contest Rules (specifically Rule #6).

  6. Teams should keep in mind the following guidelines when solving the problem and developing their solution.
    a. Summary Sheet: The summary is an essential part of your MCM/ICM paper and should appear as the first page of your solution report. The judges place considerable weight on the summary, and winning papers are often distinguished from other papers based on the quality of the summary. Click here to download the Microsoft Word Summary Sheet.
    • To write a good summary, imagine that a reader will choose whether to read the body of the paper based on your summary: Your concise presentation in the summary should inspire a reader to learn about the details of your work.
    • You should write the summary last, as it should clearly describe your approach to the problem and, most prominently, your most important conclusions. Ensure you plan time after solving your problem to write a comprehensive and  articulate summary.
    • Summaries that are mere restatements of the contest problem, or are a cut-and-paste boilerplate from the Introduction are generally considered to be weak.
    b. Overall: The team’s solution should be articulate, concise, and organized in order to allow the reader to easily follow the solution process and conclusions. Key statements should present major ideas and results.
    • A Table of Contents assists the reader in previewing the organization of your report.
    • Present a clarification or restatement of the problem as appropriate.
    • Present a clear exposition of all variables and hypotheses.
    • State and justify reasonable assumptions that bear on the problem.
    • Present an analysis of the problem, motivating or justifying the model being used.
    • Summarize derivations, computations, or illustrative examples in the main body of the solution, and leave lengthy derivations and/or calculations and data in appropriate appendices.
    • Include a design of the model. Discuss how the model could be tested, to include error analysis, sensitivity, and/or stability.
    •Discuss any apparent strengths or weaknesses to your model or approach.
    • Provide a conclusion and report results explicitly.
    • Document resources and references.

  7. New! Follow COMAPMath on Twitter or COMAPCHINAOFFICIAL on Weibo for the most up to date information before, during, and after the contest.

在比赛中-选择和解决问题

  1. 竞赛问题将于美国东部时间2021年2月4日(星期四)下午5:00,在竞赛网站上供参赛队查看:

    https://www.comap.com/undergraduate/contests/mcm

    查看问题不需要密码。只需在美国东部时间2021年2月4日(星期四)下午5点或之后访问竞赛网站,您就会看到一个链接来查看问题。

  2. 竞赛问题也将提供给团队,以便在美国东部时间2021年2月4日(星期四)下午4:50准确查看以下镜像站点:

    http://www.comap-math.com/mcm/index.html

    http://www.mathismore.net/mcm/index.html

    http://www.mathportals.com/mcm/index.html

    http://www.immchallenge.org/mcm/index.html

    如果无法访问任何站点,则可能是本地网络连接有问题。请与本地网络服务提供商联系以解决此问题。

  3. 每个注册团队可以选择六个问题中的任何一个,并且只应提交一个问题的论文。

    •MCM问题是问题A、问题B或问题C。

    •ICM问题是问题D、问题E或问题F。

  4. 团队可使用任何无生命的数据、材料、计算机、软件、参考资料、网站、书籍等来源。团队应使用脚注、尾注或联机文档引用使用的所有来源,并包括引用所有来源的相关参考列表。

  5. 参赛队不得向竞赛规则(特别是规则6)所述参赛队成员以外的任何人寻求帮助。

  6. 团队在解决问题和制定论文时应牢记以下准则。

    a、 摘要表:摘要是MCM/ICM文件的重要组成部分,应显示为论文报告的第一页。评委们对总结很重视,根据总结的质量,获奖论文往往与其他论文有所区别。单击此处下载Microsoft Word摘要工作表。

    •要写一篇好的摘要,想象一下读者会根据你的摘要来选择是否阅读论文正文:你在摘要中的简洁陈述应该会激励读者了解你工作的细节。

    •你应该把总结写在最后,因为它应该清楚地描述你解决问题的方法,最重要的是,你最重要的结论。确保你在解决问题后计划好时间,写一个全面而清晰的总结。

    •仅仅是对竞赛问题的重述,或是复制粘贴模板的摘要通常被认为是薄弱的。

During the Contest – Preparing a Solution Document

  1. MCM/ICM solutions are judged as varying degrees of successfully completing the contest (from Successful Participant up to Outstanding). There is no passing or cut-off score, and therefore, partial solutions are acceptable and teams are encouraged to complete as much of the problem as they are able to do. MCM/ICM judges are primarily interested in the team’s thought processes, analysis of the problem, modeling approaches, and mathematical methods.

  2. Teams must submit their entire solution in one Adobe PDF electronic file, consisting of written text, figures, charts, and supporting materials. Papers must be typed in English, with a readable font of at least 12-point type. Do not send additional “non solution” files such as data or computer programs.

  3. Each page of the solution must contain the team control number and the page number at the top of the page. Use a page header on each page - for example: Team # 214321, Page 6 of 13.

  4. Your solution report should start with the Summary Sheet followed by the team’s solution. Ensure your solution meets the page limit requirements as stated in the problem. A Table of Contents is encouraged and does not count toward the page limit. Reference list (or Bibliography), notes pages, and any appendices do not count in the page limit and should be included after the solution pages.

  5. Names of the students, advisor, and/or institution must not appear on any page of the solution. The solution file must not contain any identifying information other than the team Control Number.

  6. STOP making any changes to the solution at 8:00pm EST on Monday, February 8, 2021.

比赛期间-准备论文文档

  1. MCM/ICM论文被视为不同程度的成功完成竞赛(从成功参与者到特等奖)。没有通过或及格分数,因此,部分论文是可以接受的,鼓励团队尽可能多地完成问题。MCM/ICM评委主要对团队的思维过程、问题分析、建模方法和数学方法感兴趣。

  2. 团队必须在一个Adobe PDF电子文件中提交他们的整个论文,该文件由书面文本、图表和支持材料组成。论文必须用英文打字,字体至少为12号。不要发送其他“非论文”文件,如数据或计算机程序。
