Dear colleagues, dear friends,
Let me remind you that in 2012 William Lowell Putnam Competition takes
place in USA and Canada today on Saturday, 1 December 2012. It is
running from 10:00 a.m. GMT-4 in Atlantic zone till 4:00 p.m. GMT-10
in Hawaii zone. Also some students may take exams on Sunday because of
This is why at MathLinks.ro/ArtOfProblemSolving.com forum (for
example) such conversations are officially forbidden until Sunday
evening, 8:00 p.m EST (5:00 p.m. PST):
Also we are going to organize (unofficially) a local competition in
our university in Ukraine by the problems from Putnam Competition 2012
on Sunday, 2 December 2012. (The day of Saturday in USA and Canada is
the night from Saturday to Sunday in Ukraine.) We would like to start
at 10:00 a.m GMT+2 (3:00 a.m. EST, 0:00 a.m. PST) and finish at 5:00
p.m. GMT+2 (10:00 a.m. EST, 7:00 a.m. PST).
So like previous years let me ask you _NOT TO PUBLISH_ and _NOT TO
DISCUSS_ Putnam problems at least untill that time.
Thank you very much for your understanding and cooperation.
