Putting Math Problems in Proper Order
November 17, 2009
The American Institute of Mathematics announces a new online tool for creating and maintaining lists of unsolved mathematics problems. This tool has the potential to change mathematics research by bringing a wider range of people and expertise in contact with research questions. The tool is being released on the same day as a worldwide celebration of the 150th anniversary of the most important problem in mathematics: the Riemann Hypothesis.
