**Mathematical Contest in Modeling**

Since 1991, students of mathematical physics have participated very successfully in an International Mathematical Contest in Modeling. This involves two teams each of whom must complete a written report over three and a half days on their mathematical solution to a given "real world" problem. The
MCM has become a major event in the calendar for our students.
