The Clay Mathematics Institute

Enhancement and Partnership Program

The principal aim of the program is to enhance activities that are already planned and financially viable. It is most commonly used to support a small number of highly distinguished speakers at a conference or workshop, but the program also provides funds for other forms of partnership, including graduate summer schools and similar events. The call for proposals for activities taking place after September 30, 2017  is open. 

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.
