Example text

The amount of curvature concentrated in a vertex v equals 2π − δ (v), where δ (v) is the sum of all interior angles at v of all faces at v. This combinatorial version of the Gauss-Bonnet Theorem was the content of the mathematical lecture in the brief invitation movie to the IMO 2009 shown at the IMO 2008 in Madrid, and it is also what Gauss measured in his survey maps. We would like to thank Malte Lackmann, Armin Leutbecher, and Peter Ullrich for useful suggestions for this text. 3 Daily News Each day we issued the “IMO Daily News” to facilitate communication between the 565 contestants and their team guides and deputy leaders, and also with the jury and the coordinators, once they moved to the Jacobs campus.
