SATMO 2014

Last Saturday, the 3rd annual South African Tertiary Mathematics Olympiad was held. For US based readers think of an SA version of the Putnam contest.  Full results, questions and solutions,  can be found here.

Two of the questions (8 and 17) this year where submitted by me. Question 8 I first heard from Michael Lugo and question 17 I first heard from Pravesh Ranchod

A huge thank you for organizing the event goes out to Stephan Wagner of Stellenbosch Univesity, as does a huge congrats to the winners.
