CMI invites proposals under the Enhancement and Partnership Program for fiscal year 2025 (1 October 2024-30 September 2025) and later. The principal aim of the program is to enhance activities that are already planned and financially viable.

The Clay Mathematics Institute (CMI) calls for nominations for its competition for the 2025 Clay Research Fellowships.

The Clay Mathematics Institute is a global organisation dedicated to furthering the beauty, power and universality of mathematical thought.

The prime number theorem determines the average distribution of the primes. The Riemann hypothesis tells us about the deviation from the average. Formulated in Riemann’s 1859 paper, it asserts that all the ‘non-obvious’ zeros of the zeta function are complex numbers with real part 1/2.

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.

The answer to this conjecture determines how much of the topology of the solution set of a system of algebraic equations can be defined in terms of further algebraic equations. The Hodge conjecture is known in certain special cases, e.g., when the solution set has dimension less than four. But in dimension four it is unknown.
