We have designed an online creative outlet for those interested in Optimization. It is called Wikimization.

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.*,
Farkas' Lemma.

We hope to acquire the benefits of Wikipedia and eradicate its notorious faults. The ability to enter mathematics in a style of LaTex is a plus, for example, while reversion by adolescents will be 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. If desired, you may Protect pages from further edits.

We hope this Wikimization site becomes as valuable to students as it is to scholars, professionals, and academics. Please spread the word about this new online repository for Optimization mathematics.
