Call for Nominations

The Clay Mathematics Institute calls for nominations for its competition for the 2020 Clay Research Fellowships.  The primary selection criteria for the Fellowship are the exceptional quality of the candidate's research and the candidate's promise to become a mathematical leader.  All Fellows are recent PhDs and most are selected as they complete their thesis work.  Nominations close November 16, 2019.
 

 

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.
