## The millennium prize problems I

These videos document the Institute’s landmark Paris millennium event which took place on May 24-25, 2000, at the Collège de France. On this occasion, CMI unveiled the “Millennium Prize Problems,” seven mathematical quandaries that have long resisted solution. The announcement in Paris honored the 100-year anniversary of David Hilbert’s address of 1900 to the International Congress of Mathematicians in Paris, in which he outlined 23 mathematics problems that set the tone for much 20th century mathematical research.
