The Polymath8 participants was featured on the June/July cover of Notices of the American Mathematical Society, the world’s most widely read mathematical journal. The photographs on the cover portray thirteen of the fifteen people, including a team of top mathematicians and Dr. Xie, as being primary participants of the Polymath8 project that improved dramatically the bound of prime gaps, based on the stunning work of Dr. Yitang Zhang.

The Polymath8 project, led by Prof. Terence Tao and in collaboration with a team of top mathematicians, was launched to optimize the records of the bounded gaps between primes based on the breakthrough work of “Bounded gaps between primes” by Dr. Yitang Zhang. He proved that there are infinitely many pairs of primes with a finite gap, and thus resolved a weak form of the twin prime conjecture. Publications D. H. J. Polymath, et al. Ne

This work with the Polymath8 project was to find narrow gaps between primes. … Mal steuerte Xiao-Feng Xie einen Vorschlag bei, ein Robotikexperte aus Pittsburgh. Mal meldete sich Terence Tao aus Los Angeles, den einige für den brillantesten aller lebenden Mathematiker halten. Wieder andere Anregungen kamen von einem Anonymus, der sich nur als v08ltu zu erkennen gab. … Read more at Der Spiegel (web | pdf).
