Make your voice heard

You may remember the polymath1 project, in which Tim Gowers envisioned, and realized, a “massively collaborative” approach to solving an open question in mathematics. The project succeeded, and in fact exceeded its goal. Various subsequent polymath projects are under way, suggested by Gil Kalai and Terry Tao. Notably, Terry Tao has launched a project to find an efficient deterministic algorithm to construct large primes.

Meanwhile, Gowers has been thinking about his next polymath proposal, and he has recently written about the possible projects that he has in mind. One of the projects involves a new approach to proving circuit lower bounds. No detail of this approach is given; nor it will, unless it becomes a polymath project. Gowers would like people to comment on his post indicating which projects they are most interested in.

One thought on “Make your voice heard

  1. The quote just proves all people are alike, more or less. My theory of, well, mostly everything is that, let’s say, matter and antimatter are alike only in different times. Antimatter is the perfect form of matter, everything has a balance, and the perfect balance means no need for anything, no universe, no matter… So is antimatter just matter passed through all shapes and forms until it reached the perfect “non-existing” form? Please elaborate on the subject with me on my e-mail gevelegian@yahoo.co.uk Thank you!
