LIMO (Mathematics Competition)

The LIMO is a national mathematics competition in which students from universities in The Netherlands and Belgium solve Mathematics problems to become the best team of that year's LIMO. LIMO is an abbreviation for the Dutch phrase "Landelijke Interuniversitaire Mathematische Olympiade" and is organised this year by Abacus, the study association for mathematics in Enschede.

The problems that the participants try to solve are provided by established mathematicians and companies from The Netherlands and Belgium. The time span available for solving these problems is three hours. After these three hours, the exercises are checked by a group of volunteers and the winner is declared. On the day of the LIMO, there is also a campus tour with a nice lunch and the participants close the day with a dinner. The problems are diversified in difficulty, such that not only more experienced mathematics students can show off their mathematics skills, but first- or second year students can contribute something to the competition as well.

Tom Verhoeff, one of the authors of the LIMO, will organize two training sessions with tips and tricks to prepare you for the contest! One training will be on Wednesday the 3rd of May from 19.00 to 21.00 and the other training will be on Tuesday the 16th of May from 19.00 to 21.00. The training will be held in MetaForum 15.

You can (and should) enroll via the website of the LIMO, before the 12th of May in a team of maximum 4 people: LIMO. Note that for students in their third year or higher, there are additional constraints for team formations.

However, if you can not find other team-mates to sign up with, you can subscribe here such that we (GEWIS) can bring you in contact with other interested people to form a team. The trainings can also be used to find a team!
