The 2018 LAU Mathematics Tournament LAU-MT

First Call

The 2018 LAU Mathematics Tournament (LAU-MT) is a contest that brings together undergraduate mathematics students, from various universities in Lebanon, in a context on Applied Mathematics related problems. This yearly tournament is intended to encourage undergraduate students to enroll in graduate Mathematics programs and to engage in research projects in Applied Mathematics.


The LAU Mathematics Tournament is a mathematical contest for junior or senior mathematics students (2nd or 3rd year) enrolled in universities in Lebanon and the region.

Participation in the LAU-MT 2018

All Universities in Lebanon are invited to participate in the LAU-MT 2018. Each university is invited to send a maximum of two two-student teams. The Mathematics Departments of each participating university are represented by one faculty serving in the scientific committee. The competition is intended to students in their second or third year of university education in Mathematics and will consist of a three-hour session. ProbĀ­lems will be from the fields of Applied Mathematics in general, including Differential Equations, Numerical Analysis, Real and Complex Analysis, Combinatory and Probability. The working language will be English.


The LAU-MT 2018 will take place at the Byblos campus of the Lebanese American University on Saturday May 12, 2018 starting 09:00 in the Academic Computer Center Block A.
