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.
Alexander Chervov asked over Mathoverflow about Noteworthy results in and around 2010 and some interesting results were offered in the answers. If you would like to mention additional results you can comment on them here. The only requirement is to … Continue reading
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 (September 2015): Terry Tao have now solved Erdos discrepancy problem and proved that indeed the discrepancy tends to infinity. See also this blog post on Tao’s blog. Update: Gowers’s … Continue reading
