The Hungarian Association of Physics Students is happy to announce,
the 41st and for the 12th time international
Rudolf Ortvay International Problemsolving Competition in Physics.
Date: 21st October – 2rd November, 2010
The competition is online, so you are likely to join from any country on the world, if you are a university or PhD student in any field.
The goal is to solve up to ten from the 30-40 problems given. These can be downloaded from the web page above in several formats from 12 am (CET), the 21st of October, and send Your solutions back via email or fax till the deadline, that is 2rd November 2010. You have to solve the problems by yourself (no group works are accepted) but you are welcome to use any tools you wish (including computers).
The assigned problems do not focus on school-level problem-solving routine but rather on the skills of physical way of thinking,
recognition of the heart of the problem, and the appropriate choice in the mathematical armory.
The competitors are selected into categories by their years of study.
(PhD students also form an separate category), so dear Undergraduates,
don’t be afraid to join!
