The winners of the 2013 Intel STS Competition have been announced recently. Nice to see that, again, many math projects made the top 10:
– Samuel Zbarsky finished 7th by improving lower and upper bounds on a ratio of path lengths in a high-dimensional Euclidean Geometry problem ;
Back in december 2012, the Siemens Competition revealed its own winners. No math project got in the top 6 individual, but two teams made the top 6:
– Daniel Fu and Patrick Tan finished 2nd with their project on genetic oscillatory networks.
– Jonathan Tidor and Rohil Prasad ranked 5th for their work on staged self-assembly of Wang tiles.
Well done to them all!
