This is the wiki for ''polymath'' projects - massively collaborative online mathematical projects.  The idea of such projects originated in Tim Gowers' blog post [http://gowers.wordpress.com/2009/01/27/is-massively-collaborative-mathematics-possible/ Is massively collaborative mathematics possible?]
+
  
Many polymath projects will be proposed, planned, and run at [http://polymathprojects.org/ this blog].

The Polymath wiki needs a [[logo]]
 
  
== Existing polymath projects ==

----
  
* [[Polymath1]]: New proofs and bounds for the density Hales-Jewett theorem.  Initiated Feb 1, 2009; research results have now been submitted for publication.
 
* [[Definable Banach Spaces|Polymath2]]: Must an “explicitly defined” Banach space contain <math>c_0</math> or <math>l_p</math>?  Initiated Feb 17, 2009; attempts to relaunch via wiki, June 9 2010.
 
* [[imo 2009 q6|Mini-polymath1]]: Solving Problem 6 of the 2009 International Mathematical Olympiad.  Initiated July 20, 2009; five proofs obtained so far.
 
* [[The polynomial Hirsch conjecture|Polymath3]].  The polynomial Hirsch conjecture.  Proposed July 17, 2009; launched, September 30, 2010. 
 
* [[finding primes|Polymath4]]: A deterministic way to find primes.  Proposed July 27, 2009; launched Aug 9, 2009.  Research results have been submitted for publication.
