Clay Mathematics Institute

Dedicated to increasing and disseminating mathematical knowledge

The Clay Mathematics Institute

The Clay Research Conference will be held on 1 October at  Oxford.  The speakers are: Ben Green (Oxford), ​​Jonathan Pila (Oxford), Paul Seidel (MIT), Scott Sheffield (MIT). Four workshops will be held in the week of the conference:

  • Advances in Probablity (Ivan Corwin and Martin Hairer)
  • Analytic Number Theory (Ben Green and Roger Heath-Brown)
  • Functional Transcendence (Jonathan Pia and Alex Wilkie)
  • Symplectic Topology (Dominic Joyce, Alexander Ritter, and Ivan Smith)

Call for nominations, Clay Research Fellowships.  Closing date: November 16.

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.
