Yale University team, Richie Hsiung, Deyuan Li, and Andrew Milas, won fifth place in the team competition of the 2022 Putnam exam.
For each school, the three highest-scoring students are automatically selected to become the team members. Big congratulations to Richie, Deyuan, and Andrew for their individual achievements, as well as for bringing the Yale team to the top five for the first time since 1991!
Congratulations also to all Yale students who joined this year’s competition: We are very proud of all of you for participating in this challenging contest. Your interest and excitement about trying out these difficult problems is a real treasure for all of us.
Special thanks to Mihai Alboiu, who organized the contest this past Fall, and offered several seminar sessions to help students prepare and practice – and to Pat Devlin who led the seminar in previous years. We appreciate your work very much.
