My name is Şerban Cercelescu (hence the website name). I'm 17, living in Bucharest, currently a high school student, pursuing a career as a researcher in digital physics. For now at least, the acheivement I'm proudest of is preparing more than 40 younger students for the olympiad in informatics, 7 of whom gained medals at international competitions representing Romania, and many more representing Belgium, Switzerland and the Netherlands.

A few of my scientifical interests are: theoretical mechanics, theoretical computer science, abstract algebra, combinatorics and competitive programming. I'm currently training for the Romanian IOI selection contest and starting to see just the tip of the iceberg in my study of serious physics. If you have any questions about the content of this website or have an interesting question related to one of the topics stated above, here is where you can find me:

What is the cost of lies? It’s not that we will mistake them for the truth. The real danger is that, if we hear enough lies, then we no longer recognize the truth at all. What can we do then? What else is left but to abandon even the hope of truth and content ourselves instead with stories? In these stories, it doesn’t matter who the heroes are. All we want to know is who is to blame.
