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

If it is easy to check that a solution to a problem is correct, is it also easy to solve the problem? This is the essence of the P vs NP question. Typical of the NP problems is that of the Hamiltonian Path Problem: given N cities to visit, how can one do this without visiting a city twice? If you give me a solution, I can easily check that it is correct. But I cannot so easily find a solution.
