Polymath 5

February 13, 2014

There is some news on this problem. There is a paper here.

It finds an example of size 1160 that has value 2 and proves that that example is maximal. The polymath 5 project found an example of size 1124. The proof that 1160 is maximal required a large computer proof. For more information see this post.


Polymath 8

February 8, 2014

There is an uploaded version of 8a. Also there is going to be a article about the experience of working on 8a and possibly 8b for the newsletter of the European Mathematical society. The deadline is around April. For more check this post.

Polymath 9

January 19, 2014

Polymath 9 has answered one of the questions it asked apparently. The idea that was being tried didn’t work there was a counterexample. It could possibly continue if the method could be modified to avoid the counterexample which is here. Meanwhile Polymath 8 has spawned a new project Polymath 8b. this is the latest post of this project.
