Palo Alto's leading math whiz Lynnelle Ye will compete with the world's brightest young math minds next week when she travels to Shijiazhuang, China, to take part in the 2010 China Girls Mathematical Olympiad. Ye, a graduate of Palo Alto High School, is one of eight mathletes who will represent the U.S. team in the competition. Members were chosen from the top ranks of female finalists in the 2010 U.S.A. Mathematical Olympiad, according to the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute of Berkeley. Ye took fourth place nationally in this year's Intel Science Talent Search, and second in the Siemens Competition in Math, Science and Technology. She will enroll at Stanford University this fall.
