## Problem Solving Seminar

## Problem Sources

Most problems we have assigned are from past Putnam exams
or past British Mathematical Olympiads.
The Putnam problems and solutions are available on-line.
See the links from the main course page.
British Olympiad problems are in a book in Dr. Larget's office.
Some problems are from alternative source.
