Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer

  • In the 1960s, B. Birch and H.P.F. Swinnerton- Dyer computed amazing data about elliptic curves, which lead to a fundamental conjecture.

  • The conjecture is still very much open! For more details, see Wiles's paper at the Clay Math Institute Millenial Problems web page.
