The results of the 2018 American Undergraduate Mathematical Contest In Modeling (MCM) and the Interdisciplinary Contest In Modeling (ICM) were announced several days ago. The students of SCUN won Meritorious Winners 3 items, the Honorable Mention 14 items.
The “private pricing problem” selected by the Dai Wanping team won the first prize in this competition. In the context of big data and information security, Dai Wanping's team established six non-linear relationships between privacy owners and privacy seekers through the introduction of virtual non-profit institutions, and determined the pricing model of personal information privacy in the era of big data with cash flow as the starting point, and discussed the impact of information leakage on privacy prices。

The Pang Runjuan team that won the first prize in the competition studied the impact of climate change on the National Fragile Index (NF). Pang Runjuan team established a comprehensive evaluation model to calculate NF and analyzed its causes in 147 countries over the past 10 years, then taking Zambia as an example, the paper focused on discussing the impact of extreme climate change on NF and tried to determine how to adopt macroeconomic policy controls to push social stability.

The Feng Qi team, who won the first prize, chose to study how climate change affects regional instability in this competition. Feng Qi team established an optimized AHP model for calculating the national vulnerability index, and used the FTA improved AHP model to calculate the national vulnerability index S. Mozambique was taken as an example to calculate the critical point of national vulnerability, the climate was a sensitive indicator of a country’s vulnerability, finally, a series of climate change risk prevention measures were proposed.

MCM/ICM is a world-class academic competition organized by the American Consortium for Mathematics and Its Application (COMAP). It has been supported by the American Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), Mathematical Association of America (MAA), American Institute of Operation Research and Management Sciences (INFORMS), the American Statistical Association (ASA) and other organizations. The 2018 competition attracted 20,602 teams from 19 countries and regions around the world, including famous universities such as Harvard University, Columbia University, Tsinghua University, and Peking University.
