One hundred and fifty years of mathematics will be proved wrong if a new computer program stops running. Thankfully, it’s unlikely to happen, but the code behind it is testing the limits of the mathematical realm.
The UCLA team (Emre Girgin, Ufuk Kanat, Dillon Zhi) was ranked #6 out of 447 institutions, and first among all public universities.
Individually, Dillon Zhi was ranked #68 in North America and received an Honorable Mention. Other high scorers from UCLA (in the top 500 overall) were: Ufuk Kanat, Osman Akar, Emre Girgin, Konstantin Miagkov, Joan Kim, Luke Harmon, Iris Cong, Ryo Kudo, Man Cheung Tsui, and Wenjun Cai. A total of 22 UCLA students participated.
