Call for Proposals

CMI invites proposals under the Enhancement and Partnership Program for fiscal year 2021 (1 October 2020-30 September 2021) 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 2019.

 

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.
