- Here is an online creative outlet in Optimization called Wikimization;
- An online repository for Optimization mathematics,
- A place to collect and correct.
- The name is a meld of Wiki and Optimization.
- The site icon comes from proof of an equality between the positive semidefinite cone and cone of Euclidean distance matrices.
- Wikimization's purpose is to provide a place on the web where knowledge about any sort of mathematical Optimization may be deposited;
- e.g., Linear matrix inequality.
- 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.
