In 1904 the French mathematician Henri Poincaré asked if the three dimensional sphere is characterized as the unique simply connected three manifold. This question, the Poincaré conjecture, was a special case of Thurston's geometrization conjecture. Perelman's proof tells us that every three manifold is built from a set of standard pieces, each with one of eight well-understood geometries.


Two new members will be joining the CMI’s Scientific Advisory Board in January in succession to Richard Melrose and Yum-Tong Siu.   Michael J Hopkins is a professor in the Mathematics...
In 2013, the CMI supported a conference at MIT to celebrate the Gelfand Centennial.  The videos from this conference are now available online.
