International Mathematical Olympiad 2001 Medalists Announced on Web Results from the 42nd International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) are now available at http://imo.wolfram.com, the official IMO scoring site. The competition phase of the IMO, which brought together over 450 of the most talented high-school-age mathematicians from more than 80 countries, concluded Monday in Washington, D.C. The awards ceremony will be held Friday, July 13 at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, but official scores can be seen worldwide at the scoring web site. The site, hosted by IMO title sponsor Wolfram Research, Inc., contains scoring results for all winning students as well as the competition problems and solutions. Also available at the IMO site are contestant photos and profiles, interesting IMO facts (such as the names of Fields Medalists who competed previously), and other pictures from this year's event. Notable performers from IMO 2001 include USA team member Reid Barton, who became the first contestant ever to win four IMO gold medals. He, along with teammate Gabriel Carroll, received a perfect score on this year's exam. Overall, the USA team received four gold and two silver medals. The China team also repeated its outstanding performance of last year, with all team members taking home gold medals; team Russia was close behind with five gold medals and one silver. This is the first time the IMO has had a scoring site, and hence the ability to show award recipients both by score and by country as well as student scoring distributions and performance for each question. The scoring distributions and graphs were generated using Mathematica, Wolfram Research's flagship technical computing software.
