- Here is an online creative outlet in Optimization 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. [1]
- 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.
