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

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.
