The International Olympiads on Astronomy and Astrophysics (IOAA) are competitions where teams of high-school students from around the world compete in a series of tests and are awarded medals based on their performance. Started in 2007, more than 45 countries have participated in these olympiads. The competition comprises three rounds: theoretical problems, data analysis problems and night sky observation tests. This book presents problems from all the eight IOAAs held thus far. The problems are categorised according to the concepts involved and also graded according to the difficulty level. Solutions to all the problems are provided. Additional notes help make the solutions self-explanatory.
