Romanian Mathematicians and IMO

As a creator and promoter of the IMO, Romania’s scientific benefits are significant. If we use the data collected in for the period 1959-2003, more than two thirds of former Romanian IMO contestants are or were involved in academia or research, in Romania or abroad.” (Berinde V. and Păcurar M. 2009).
