Clay Lectures

Organizers of conferences and similar events can nominate a highly distinguished mathematician to attend to deliver a Clay Lecture, which might be either a designated plenary lecture within the conference program or a special lecture delivered to a wider audience.

The funding available would be in the region of $10,000, to cover travel and accommodation expenses, an honorarium, and other items to enhance the event.

 

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.
