## Current revision

• 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.
• If desired, you may Protect pages from further edits by becoming a Sysop. (Contact a Bureaucrat.)
• We hope this Wikimization site becomes as valuable to students as it is to scholars or professionals, engineers and academics.
