  • Here is an online creative outlet in Optimization called Wikimization;
    • An online repository for Optimization mathematics,
    • A place to collect and correct.
  • Wikimization's purpose is to provide a place on the web where knowledge about any sort of mathematical Optimization may be deposited;
  • It can also be a great place to create and collaborate on papers because this Wiki understands both LaTeX and HTML;
    • i.e., multiple authors can work on the same paper anywhere there is Internet access.
  • We hope to acquire the benefits of Wikipedia and eradicate its notorious faults:
    • The ability to enter mathematics in LaTeX is a plus, for example, while indiscriminate reversion by random adolescents is eliminated.
  • Here is a place you may disseminate ongoing research or established theory at any level from fundamental to esoteric:
    • definitive,
    • biographical,
    • historical,
    • or even speculative.
  • If desired, you may remain anonymous or establish ownership and authorship of your work.
    • A history buffer under the History tab for each page shows author (if you logged in) and date of each entry.
    • By pressing Compare Selected Versions, one can see what changes were made to a document all the way back to inception.
    • In this way, authors may claim conception of a particular idea.
