Winners of the Mathematics Challenge 2020–21

Congratulations to the winners of the Lincoln Mathematics Challenge 2020-21 and a big thank you to all participants! A very stiff competition made the choices difficult for the Competition Committee, and each place had to be awarded jointly to several winners. The Awards Ceremony has taken place on 13 February 2021 as an online event, which included a public lecture by Prof. Evgeny Khukhro “The role of Algebra in Mathematics“. The virtual audience gave rounds of applause to the winners, who received their certificates and virtual trophies from the Head of Lincoln School of Mathematics and Physics Prof. Andrei Zvelindovsky. The ceremony and the lecture were streamed on YouTube and the recording can be watched here.
