如果以上网页都不能访问,说明您的本地internet链接有问题,请与您的Internet服务提供商联系。

B. Choose a problem:
Each team can choose any one of the three problemchoices:
•     MCM teams choose either ProblemA or Problem B; an MCM team may submita solution to only one of the problems. (MCM teams should NOT choose ProblemC.)

B.选题
每个参赛队可以从三个题目中任选一个题目作答:
MCM的参赛队可以选择赛题 A 或 B;
MCM的参赛队只要提交两个问题之一的解决方案就可以。MCM参赛队不得选择赛题C。
 
ICM的参赛队可以选择赛题C。ICM参赛队除了赛题C别无其它选择,不能选择赛题A或者B。

C. Teams prepare solutions:
1. Teams may use any inanimate source of data or materials:computers, software, references, web sites, books, etc. ALL SOURCES USED MUSTBE CREDITED. Failure to credit a source will result in a team being disqualifiedfrom the competition.

C.参赛队准备解决方案:
1. 参赛队可以利用任何非生命提供的数据和资料——包括计算机,软件,参考书目,网站,书籍等,但是所有引用的资料必须注明出处,如有参赛队未注明引用的内容的出处,将被取消参赛资格。


2.   Teammembers may not seek help from or discuss the problem with their advisor oranyone else, except other members of the same team. Input in any form fromanyone other than student team members is strictly forbidden. This includesemail, telephone contact, and personal conversation, communication via web chator other question-answer systems, or any other form of communication.

2.参赛队成员不允许向指导教师或者除了本团队成员以外的其他人寻求帮助或讨论问题。与除本团队成员以外的人的任何形式的接触都是严格禁止的。这包括通过E-mail联系、电话联系、私人交谈、通过网络聊天联络或是其他的任何问答系统,或者其他任何的交流方式。

3.   Partialsolutions are acceptable. There is no passing or failing cut-off score, andnumerical scores will not be assigned. The MCM/ICM contest judges are primarilyinterested in the team’s approach and methods.

3.部分解决方案是可接受的。大赛不存在通过或是不通过的分数分界点,也不会有一个数字形式的分数。MCM /ICM的评判主要是依据参赛队的解决方法和步骤。

4.   SummarySheet: The summary is an essential part ofyour MCM/ICM paper. The judges place considerable weight on the summary, andwinning papers are often distinguished from other papers based on the qualityof the summary.
To write a good summary, imagine that a reader willchoose whether to read the body of the paper based on your summary: Yourconcise presentation in the summary should inspire a reader to learn about thedetails of your work. Thus, a summary should clearly describe your approach tothe problem and, most prominently, your most importantconclusions.  Summaries that are mere restatements of the contestproblem, or are a cut-and-paste boilerplate from the Introduction are generallyconsidered to be weak.

4.摘要
摘要是 MCM 参赛论文的一个非常重要的部分。在评卷过程中,摘要占据了相当大的比重,以至于有的时候获奖论文之所以能在众多论文中脱颖而出是因为其高质量的摘要。
好的摘要可以使读者通过摘要就能判断自己是否要通读论文的正文部分。如此一来,摘要就必须清楚的描述解决问题的方法,显著的表达论文中最重要的结论。摘要应该能够激发出读者阅读论文详细内容的兴趣。那些简单重复比赛题目和复制粘贴引言中的样板文件的摘要一般将被认为是没有竞争力的。

Besides the summary sheet as described each paper shouldcontain the following sections:
除了摘要页以外每篇论文还需要包括以下的一些部分:
l  Restatement and clarification of theproblem: State in your own words what youare going to do.
再次重述或者概括问题——用你自己的话重述你将要解决的问题。
l  Explain assumptions and rationale/justification: Emphasize the assumptions thatbear on the problem. Clearly list all variables used in your model.
对于基本原理以及证明的假设——着重陈述在解决问题中提出的假设,清晰的列出所有在模型中应用到的变量。
l  Include your model design and justification for type model used ordeveloped.
对于已经用过的或者应用到的模型的构建与证明。
l  Describe model testing and sensitivityanalysis,including error analysis, etc.
模型的测试与灵敏度分析,包括误差分析等。
l  Discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your model or approach.
关于模型或求解方法的优缺点讨论
5.   The judgeswill evaluate the quality of your writing in the Solution Paper:
·  Concisenessand organization are extremely important.
·  Keystatements should present major ideas and results.
·  Present aclarification or restatement of the problem, as appropriate.
·  Present aclear exposition of all variables, assumptions, and hypotheses.
·  Present ananalysis of the problem, including the motivation or justification for themodel that is used.
·  Include adesign of the model.
·  Discuss howthe model could be tested, including error analysis and stability(conditioning, sensitivity, etc.).
·  Discuss anyapparent strengths or weaknesses in your model or approach.
5.评委对于论文写作的评判主要考虑以下几个方面:
简明扼要、有组织是极为重要的。文章正文必须给出主要的解决方案构想和结果。
需适当的简化或重申问题。
   一个清晰的变量和假设的列表
需包括如何通过调整使得模型付诸于实际应用这个问题的分析。
需包括模型的设计方案。
讨论如何进行模型测试,包括误差分析与稳定性(适用条件,灵敏度等)。
讨论模型及求解方法的显著优缺点。
6. Papers must be typed in English , single or double sided with a readable fontof (11 or 12).
6.论文需按规范的格式用英文书写,单面或者双面,用可读的字体,字号为11或12。

7.   Thesolution must consist entirely of written text, and possibly figures, charts, orother written material, on paper only. No non-paper support materials such ascomputer files or disks will be accepted.

7.整个解决方案必须由正文主体部分、必要的图形、图表或其他类型的材料组成且只能以论文形式递交。不是论文形式的材料如计算机文件或磁盘等将不被接受。
8. The Solution paper must display the team controlnumber and the page number at the top of every page; for example, use thefollowing page header on each page:
Team #321                      Page 6 of 13

8.解决方案的每一页的顶部都需要有参赛队的控制编号以及页码。我们建议在每页上使用页眉,例如:
    Team #321           Page6 of 13
9.   The namesof the students, advisor, or institution should NOT appear on any page of theprint solution or electronic solution. The solution should not contain anyidentifying information other than the team control number.

9.参赛队的成员名单、指导教师名单以及学校名称均不能出现在解决方案的任何一页上。整个赛题解决方案不能包含有除了参赛队控制编号以外的任何身份识别信息。
