## Revision as of 15:42, 1 July 2008

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

An online repository for Optimization mathematics.

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.

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 a style of 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.

If desired, you may Protect pages from further edits.

We hope this Wikimization site becomes as valuable to students as it is to scholars or professionals, engineers and academics.
