Peter had been a member of the Australian Mathematical Olympiad Committee and of the Problem Committee for the Australian Mathematics Competitions. He brought the International Mathematics Tournament of the Towns (IMTT) to western countries in 1988, translating the early problems into English by learning Russian. Under his helm, the AMT published six books covering the first 28 IMTT. He was an author or a co-author for five of them.Andy Liu obtained his doctorate in mathematics as well as a professional diploma in elementary education in 1976, qualifying him officially to teach from kindergarten to graduate school.
