1Welcome to the theory-edge Mailing List
- May 18, 1998The "theory-edge" list is for informal, collegial discussion of the latest
research advances, and especially newsworthy cutting-edge or breakthrough
developments, in the hardest problems in computation and mathematics. Topics
are the most difficult unsolved theoretical problems currently facing computer
scientists and theoretical mathematicians.
Areas of particular interest are:
P vs. NP
Even perfect numbers
The discussion will ideally be as nontechnical as possible and focus on
interesting and unexpected connections across seemingly disparate fields.
Particularly sought are insights that seem to suggest entirely new fields or
general principles previously unrecognized or unrelated. Highly specific
and specialized research without general implications is less preferrable.
The emphasis is on an atmosphere of interdisciplinary insight and spurring
a fusion of subscriber's knowledge that may contribute to their solution.
Posting entire papers is not appropriate, however abstracts and URL pointers
are encouraged. Short essays are preferred to short responses and
message-quoting. Conference announcements and calls for papers should be
sent to the moderator <vznuri@...> who may or may not post them
depending on perceived interest to subscribers. The moderator is
responsible for guiding the discussion, and complaints about the contents
or traffic of the list should never be posted but instead forwarded to
the moderator who will collect, summarize, and (in)validate them.
