For the third year in a row, UW students performed well in the William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition, in which 4623 undergraduates from 568 institutions across North America spent the first Saturday of December working on 12 difficult problems. The three-member UW team placed 15th in the country in the 2018 competition, and Dalai Chadraa—ranking in the top 50 among all participants—received Honorable Mention. The top 160 included Thomas Browning and Bodrol Olonbaatar. They and other UW participants were prepared for the competition by faculty members Jonah Ostroff and Julia Pevtsova, with Ioana Dumitriu serving as a member of the Putnam Problems Committee.
