a repository of mathematical know-how

Revision of Welcome to the Tricki from Tue, 14/04/2009 - 18:25

The Tricki is now live! You can create a user account using the 'Create account' link on the right-hand side of the screen. Once you have an account, you will be able to create and edit articles, set up a user-profile for yourself, and (eventually) keep track of changes that are relevant to you more easily.

Welcome to a brand new Wiki-style site that is intended to develop into a large store of useful mathematical problem-solving techniques. Some of these techniques will be very general, while others will concern particular subareas of mathematics. All of them will be techniques that are used regularly by mathematical problem-solvers, at every level of experience. We hope you will enjoy using the site and that many people will contribute to it. If you are new to the Tricki, then you may wish to begin by investigating the following links, which will take you to more detailed discussions of what the site is, what we hope it will eventually become, how to contribute, how to edit existing contributions, how to make comments, and more.

This is a good starting point if you want to go straight to the articles.
