Shaw sponsors math whizzes


D. E. Shaw founder David Shaw was a major supporter of this year's "Student Math Olympics," an event sponsored by the America Regions Mathematics League, which drew some 2,000 entries from middle school students around the country. They competed both individually and in organized teams set up by geographic regions. The contest culminated in a series of math face-offs in May and June at the campuses of Penn State University, the University of Iowa, the University of Georgia and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
