About us

The Program for the Advancement of Mathematically Talented Youth was founded by the late Prof. Zvi Arad and Prof. Bernard Pinchuk in 1982. The program is operated by the Israel Center for the Advancement of Mathematical Sciences and operates in collaboration with the Department of Mathematics of Bar Ilan University. 2018 marked 36 years since the program was founded. The program includes over close to 9,000 students in grades 6-10 from all over the country.

The late Professor Zvi Arad

Professor Zvi Arad, one of the founders of The Program for the Advancement of Mathematically Talented Youth, was a math professor who specialized in abstract algebra, the theory of finite groups. Professor Zvi Arad created the "Table algebras" theory - an important branch of modern algebra.
The late Professor Arad served as a lecturer at Bar Ilan University, a Rector and Acting President of Bar Ilan University in the years 1989 to 1993. In addition, Professor Arad held various senior positions at Bar Ilan University, including Dean of the Faculty of Natural science and Mathematics and as head of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. Professor Arad served as a member of the Council of High Education in Israel and in 1995 was one of the founders of the Netanya Academic College where he served as the president of the college. Professor Arad published four books, regarding about 100 articles for the International Mathematical Press, and has been a member of the editorial board of the Chinese Academy's Algebra Colloquium, and the International Journal Systems of the American Mathematical Society (A.M.S.), and more.
