LaTeX Document Class for Preparing Your Report
We provide a LaTeX class for typesetting your solutions to the MCM
or ICM problems. If you're using one of the mathematics
department's Linux systems, the
icmmcm class file will be
in TeX's path. If you're using another system, you can get the
files in .ZIP or
tar.gz format from the
project's Github repository.)
You will want to copy the
blank-template.tex file to your
working directory and edit it to reflect your team's number (assigned
by the contest administrators) and the letter of the problem you're
working on. (In 2016, A, B, or C for MCM; D, E, or F for ICM, but you
should check the MCM site to make
sure you have the right letter and contest name
If you have a chance beforehand, you might want to try
icmmcm-sample.tex file so you can see what
the report will look like.
Important Note on Submissions
