Call for Proposals

CMI invites proposals under the Enhancement and Partnership Program for fiscal year 2021-22 (1 October 2021-30 September 2022) and later.  The principal aim of the program is to enhance activities that are already planned and financially viable.  The next deadline for submissions is 1 December 2020.

Millennium Problems

If it is easy to check that a solution to a problem is correct, is it also easy to solve the problem? This is the essence of the P vs NP question. Typical of the NP problems is that of the Hamiltonian Path Problem: given N cities to visit, how can one do this without visiting a city twice? If you give me a solution, I can easily check that it is correct. But I cannot so easily find a solution.
