  • Riemann hypothesis
    In mathematics, the Riemann hypothesis is a conjecture that the Riemann zeta function has its zeros only at the negative even integers and the complex numbers with real part 1/2.
  • Hadwiger conjecture (combinatorial geometry)
    In combinatorial geometry, the Hadwiger conjecture states that any convex body in n-dimensional Euclidean space can be covered by 2n or fewer smaller bodies homothetic with the original body, and that furthermore, the upper bound of 2n is necessary iff the body is a parallelepiped.
  • Amicable numbers
    Amicable numbers are two different numbers so related that the sum of the proper divisors of each is equal to the other number.
  • Catalan's conjecture
    Catalan's conjecture (or Mihăilescu's theorem) is a theorem in number theory that was conjectured by the mathematician Eugène Charles Catalan in 1844 and proven in 2002 by Preda Mihăilescu.
  • P versus NP problem
    The P versus NP problem is a major unsolved problem in computer science.
  • Perfect number
    In number theory, a perfect number is a positive integer that is equal to the sum of its proper positive divisors, that is, the sum of its positive divisors excluding the number itself (also known as its aliquot sum).
  • Wormhole
    A wormhole or "Einstein-Rosen Bridge" is a hypothetical topological feature that would fundamentally be a shortcut connecting two separate points in spacetime.
  • Geometrization conjecture
    In mathematics, Thurston's geometrization conjecture states that certain three-dimensional topological spaces each have a unique geometric structure that can be associated with them.
  • Self-replicating spacecraft
    The idea of self-replicating spacecraft has been applied – in theory – to several distinct "tasks".
  • Hadwiger conjecture (graph theory)
    In graph theory, the Hadwiger conjecture (or Hadwiger's conjecture) states that, if all proper colorings of an undirected graph G use k or more colors, then one can find k disjoint connected subgraphs of G such that each subgraph is connected by an edge to each other subgraph.
  • Juggler sequence
    In recreational mathematics a juggler sequence is an integer sequence that starts with a positive integer a0, with each subsequent term in the sequence defined by the recurrence relation:
  • List of unsolved problems in mathematics
    Since the Renaissance, every century has seen the solution of more mathematical problems than the century before, and yet many mathematical problems, both major and minor, still remain unsolved.
  • Abhyankar's conjecture
    In abstract algebra, Abhyankar's conjecture is a 1957 conjecture of Shreeram Abhyankar, on the Galois groups of algebraic function fields of characteristic p.
  • Dixmier conjecture
    In algebra the Dixmier conjecture, asked by Jacques Dixmier in 1968, is the conjecture that any endomorphism of a Weyl algebra is an automorphism.
  • Norm residue isomorphism theorem
    In mathematics, the norm residue isomorphism theorem is a long-sought result relating Milnor K-theory and Galois cohomology.
