DIMACS/Math REU 2005 Problems Page


This page is designed to give students in the REU some interesting problems to think about. In general, these should be challenging elementary problems, but not hopelessly hard or too widely known.

If you have any suggested problems to post on this page, please submit them to Dr. János Komlós (Math REU coordinator) or to Lara Pudwell (REU graduate coordinator).

The intent is that students talk to each other about the problems rather than compete. Unusually elegant solutions may also be posted here, but being the first to solve a problem has no premium.
