a_quantum: WignerFunction (WignerFunction)
Интересная математико-историческая статья: http://arxiv.org/abs/1110.1556
Abstract: This is a special collection of problems that were given to select applicants during oral entrance exams to the math department of Moscow State University. These problems were designed to prevent Jews and other undesirables from getting a passing grade. Among problems that were used by the department to blackball unwanted candidate students, these problems are distinguished by having a simple solution that is difficult to find. Using problems with a simple solution protected the administration from extra complaints and appeals. This collection therefore has mathematical as well as historical value.

Знаю, что у меня есть френды, которым это будет интересно. Если я правильно помню, [livejournal.com profile] gostrov довелось порешать одну из таких задач на вступительном экзамене.
