Dedicated to increasing and disseminating mathematical knowledge

The Clay Mathematics Institute

Clay Research Fellowships.  The call for nominations is open until November 16.    

Clay Research Fellows are selected for their exceptional achievements and their potential to become leaders in mathematical research. All are recent Ph.D.'s, and most are selected as they complete their thesis work. The fellowships can be held anywhere in the world. Many former fellows have achieved high distinction.

Millennium Problems

Supported by much experimental evidence, this conjecture relates the number of points on an elliptic curve mod p to the rank of the group of rational points. Elliptic curves, defined by cubic equations in two variables, are fundamental mathematical objects that arise in many areas: Wiles' proof of the Fermat Conjecture, factorization of numbers into primes, and cryptography, to name three.
