If a non-mathematician wanted to conjecture something and had strong numerical evidence to support the conjecture, how would he/she go about doing so? Would the mathematical community (a) take it ...
Why Goldbach's conjecture is still non-solved and is difficult to prove? What makes the mathematicians fail when trying to prove it?
Examples of falsified (or currently open) longstanding conjectures leading to large bodies of incorrect results.
In general, the way that modern mathematical research is conducted isn't the way that many would assume is the ideal method of research. That is, mathematics is not the linear progression of ...
As we all know, the Goldbach's Conjecture is one one of the oldest and best-known unsolved problems in mathematics. I was going through some of the attempts made to solve it and got fascinated as to ...
I am hoping that this question (if in acceptable form) be community wiki. Are there any open conjectures in real analysis primarily targeting real valued functions of a single real variable ? (it may ...
What are the basic things (about when and how) to be kept in mind while proposing a conjecture in Mathematics. Should it accompany solid efforts at proof. When should any one think of proposing a ...
