Big Conjectures

Presented by:

Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
Proof assistants have been used to verify complicated proofs such as the Kepler conjecture in discrete geometry and the odd-order theorem in group theory. Can formalization technology help us to understand the statements of complicated conjectures such as Millennium (million-dollar) problems of the Clay Institute, the geometric Langlands conjecture, or the Kelvin problem for optimal partitions of space?
