IAO Problems (2011-2014)

The International Astronomy Olympiad was founded by Eurasian Astronomical Society in 1996. The competing part of IAO consists of three rounds: a theoretical, an observational, and a practical. Problems of the theoretical round involve classical problems in branches of astronomy, astrophysics, space and planetary physics, and maybe hypothetical situations. The observational round involves recognizing stars, constellations, estimating star magnitude and angular distance, working with telescopes or other observational technique. The practical round consists of problems based on data results of observations, solutions propose analysis of these data. Here are the problems of IAO, some are really old and some of the papers are latest. Enjoy!
