  • 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.
