List of conjectures


List of conjectures

This is an incomplete list of mathematical conjectures. They are divided into four sections, according to their status in 2007.

See also:

* Erdős conjecture, which lists conjectures of Paul Erdős and his collaborators
* Unsolved problems in mathematics
* List of unsolved problems
* Millennium Prize Problems

and, for proved results,

* List of theorems, list of lemmas;

also

* List of statements undecidable in ZFC

for problems not subject to conventional proof nor disproof.
