This is the wiki for polymath projects - massively collaborative online mathematical projects. The idea of such projects originated in Tim Gowers' blog post Is massively collaborative mathematics possible?

Many polymath projects will be proposed, planned, and run at this blog.

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.
  • 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.
  • Mini-polymath1: Solving Problem 6 of the 2009 International Mathematical Olympiad. Initiated July 20, 2009; five proofs obtained so far.
  • Polymath3. The polynomial Hirsch conjecture. Proposed July 17, 2009; launched, September 30, 2010.
  • Polymath4: A deterministic way to find primes. Proposed July 27, 2009; launched Aug 9, 2009. Research results have been submitted for publication.
  • Polymath5. The Erdős discrepancy problem. Proposed Jan 10, 2010; launched Jan 19, 2010.
  • Mini-polymath2: Solving a problem from the 2010 International Mathematical Olympiad. Proposed Jun 12, 2010; launched Jul 8, 2010; solved, Jul 8 2010.
  • Polymath6. Improving the bounds for Roth's theorem. Proposed Feb 5, 2011.

Polymath-like projects

Proposed polymath projects

A (partial) list of proposed projects can be found here.

If you have a tentative proposal for a polymath project, you can either make a post on it on your own blog, or place it here.
