An error in prob­lem 11.4

November 18, 2022

Dear par­ti­cipants!

In prob­lem #4 for R11 a mis­take occurred — the cycle on the fig­ure was ori­ented counter-clock­wise instead of clockwise.

We are ter­ribly sorry about that, the files below have been cor­rec­ted already.

November 16, 2022

Here is the qual­i­fy­ing (remote) round of the phys­ics Olympi­ad «For­mula of Unity»/«The Third mil­len­ni­um». We will be happy if your friends who like phys­ics also par­ti­cip­ate. How­ever, every assign­ment should be done indi­vidu­ally; oth­er­wise, your sub­mis­sion will not be considered.
