Yitang Zhang Update: A paper by James Maynard entitled “Small gaps between primes” proved that for every k there are infinitely many intervals of length f(k) each containing at least k primes. He also reduced the gap between infinitely many pairs … Continue reading
After much hesitation, I decided to share with you the videos of my lecture: Open collaborative mathematics over the internet – three examples, that I gave last January in Doron Zeilberger’s seminar at Rutgers on experimental mathematics. Parts of the 47-minutes … Continue reading
Yitang Zhang’s very recent shocking paper demonstrated that bounded gaps between primes occur infinitely often, with the explicit upper bound of 70,000,000 given for this gap. Polymath8 was launched for the dual purpose of learning Zhang’s proof and improving the upper bound … Continue reading
Over Gowers’s blog Tim and I will make an attempt to revisit polymath5. Last Autumn I prepared three posts on the problems and we decided to launch them now. The first post is here. Here is a related MathOverflow question. … Continue reading
A new Polymath7 project proposed by Chris Evans is starting in the polymath blog.
Tim Gowers wrote an interesting post where he proposed in surprising many details an Internet mechanism (mixing ingredients from the arXive, blogs, MathOverflow and polymath projects) to replace Journals. Noam Nisan (who advocated similar changes over the years) wrote an interesting related … Continue reading
MathOverflow is a remarkable recent platform for research level questions and answers in mathematics. Joe O’Rourke have asked over MO wonderful questions. (Here is a link to the questions) Many of those questions can be the starting point of a research … Continue reading
Test your intuition: For two n by n matrices A and B, is it always the case that tr(ABAB) = tr(ABBA)?
Polymath is a collective open way of doing mathematics. It started over Gowers’s blog with the polymath1 project that was devoted to the Density Hales Jewett problem. Since then we had Polymath2 related to Tsirelson spaces in Banach space theory , an intensive Polymath4 devoted … Continue reading
Polymath5 – The Erdős discrepancy problem – is on its way. Update: Gowers’s theoretical post marking the official start of Polymath 5 appeared. After several discussion threads, polymath5 devoted to Erdos’s discrepency problem is on its way on Gowers’s blog. While … Continue reading
