Tackling one of the most important open questions in mathematics from a new angle
The Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer (BSD) conjecture is one of the seven unsolved problems in mathematics identified as the Millennium Prize Problems in 2000. Relating to rational solutions to equations defining elliptic curves, much progress has been made for a wide class of elliptic curves over the rationals. The EU-funded ShimBSD project is working towards expanding descriptions significantly. Researchers plan to prove new cases of the BSD conjecture and other conjectures beyond the realm of the last critical breakthroughs in the 1990s using an innovative approach.
