The diameter of G is the maximum value in any single cell in the above table. One cell stores value because the distance from node 7 to node 8 is 5. There is no value larger than 5 in any other cell--no pair of nodes in G has distance more than 5.
The initial goals of the project were to provide: In its broadest terms, mathematics includes its overlaps with physicscomputer scienceoperations research Project mathematics, and other areas. However, there are now separate WikiProjects in many of these areas, and so the focus of WikiProject Mathematics has shifted towards articles which are primarily mathematical although it still includes many aspects of theoretical physicsfor example.
Much progress has been made. The overall organisation of the project is now pretty much in place, and a "house style" for mathematical articles is reasonably well established. The indices of mathematics articles now has over entriesand this list is automatically updated by a bot using the list of mathematics categories to identify relevant articles.
There are also lists of articles by topic which organize articles by subdiscipline and other criteria.
When contributing new articles which are even only remotely related to mathematics including biographies of mathematicians, and so onplease add at least an approximate mathematical category.
This enables us to identify, and hence review and add to or mercilessly savage! The main issues for the project are now probably the following ones: Bringing stubs up to a reasonable standard.
There are always plenty of pages that are definition-only. We need to add motivation and examples. Developing important articles into good expositions.
As anyone who teaches the subject knows, the gap between stating some true facts, and really putting over a topic, is quite large. Here we can consider also the need to add history and proper attributions. Expanding coverage to bring the subject up-to-date. This is a huge task, so the main requirements are patience and determination.
In particular, a lot of work is still needed to bring the more advanced material up-to-date, so expert contributions are to be encouraged. Keeping track of all relevant articles, by listing, categorising, and assessing them. As mentioned above, it is important to add even an approximate category to each mathematical article.
There is also a subproject whose aim is to assess the broad field, and the importance and quality of our articles. Identifying pseudo-mathematics, hoaxing, and other unattributable material. Most Wikipedians, naturally enough, don't feel qualified to pronounce on articles purporting to be mathematical, so it is up to us to identify crankery, hoaxes, and material with dubious or unverifiable sources.
Anything suspect should be reported on the talk page of this page. Things to do[ edit ] Looking for something to do?
The following table lists some of the places on Wikipedia where mathematics-related requests, suggestions, and tasks have been collected together.Math is essential for analyzing and communicating scientific results, and for stating scientific theories in a way that is clear, succinct, and testable.
