## Revision as of 12:44, 3 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 by becoming a *Sysop.* (Contact Dattorro.)

If desired, you may also **Delete** your own pages after having acquired *Sysop* status.

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