[QUICK DESCRIPTION] This is a Tricki navigation page at the top level of generality. It contains links to other very general pages about different classes of mathematical problem and could therefore be a good start if you want help with a specific problem. Another route into the Tricki can be found [[Different kinds of Tricki article|on a companion page]], which is concerned not so much with classifying mathematical problems and more with classifying Tricki articles themselves. ===General articles about different kinds of problem=== [[Finding algorithms front page|Techniques for finding algorithms and algorithmic proofs]] [[Approximation front page|Techniques for approximating one thing by another]] [[Techniques for classifying mathematical structures]] [[Techniques for comparing sets and mathematical structures]] [[Techniques for counting]] [[Equation-solving front page|Techniques for solving equations]] [[Techniques for obtaining estimates]] [[Existence proofs|Techniques for proving existence]] [[Techniques for producing explicit examples]] [[Proving equalities and identities|Techniques for proving equalities and identities]] [[Impossibility and nonexistence front page|Techniques for proving impossibility and nonexistence]] [[Techniques for proving inequalities]] [[Techniques for maximizing and minimizing]] [[Proving "for all" statements|Techniques for proving "for all" statements]]
