u003cpu003eThis groundbreaking work features two essays written by the renowned mathematician Ilan Vardi. The first essay presents a thorough analysis of contrived problems suggested to u0026#x201C;undesirableu0026#x201D; applicants to the Department of Mathematics of Moscow University. His second essay gives an in-depth discussion of solutions to the Year 2000 International Mathematical Olympiad, with emphasis on the comparison of the olympiad problems to those given at the Moscow University entrance examinations.u003c/pu003eu003cpu003eThe second part of the book provides a historical background of a unique phenomenon in mathematics, which flourished in the 1970su0026#x2013;80s in the USSR. Specially designed math problems were used not to test studentsu0026#x27; ingenuity and creativity but, rather, as u0026#x201C;killer problems,u0026#x201D; to deny access to higher education to u0026#x201C;undesirableu0026#x201D; applicants. The focus of this part is the 1980 essay, u0026#x201C;Intellectual Genocideu0026#x201D;, written by B Kanevsky and V Senderov. It is being published for the first time. Also featured is a little-known page of the Soviet history, a rare example of the oppressed organizing to defend their dignity.
