Complete Theorem Listing

The list is presented here in reverse chronological order, so that new additions will appear at the top. This is not the order in which the theorem of the day is picked which is more designed to mix up the different areas of mathematics and the level of abstractness or technicality involved. The way that the list of theorems is indexed is described here.

All files are pdf pdf file icon, mostly between 100 and 300 Kbytes in size.

A QED following a theorem indicates that the description includes a (sketch) proof of the theorem.

A Notes link takes you to accompanying notes (e.g. expert commentary or references to source articles). Uses MathJax which takes a while to load and is unpredictable on handheld devices.

Alternative versions of theorem descriptions are available as indicated:

  • monochrome versions, where theorem illustrations depend on colour for their effect;
  • poster versions supress clickable icons and add a more visible theoremoftheday logo
  • translations from the original English (may have some variation in content). Thanks esp. to translators Demetres Christofides (Greek) and Juan Carlos Gil Montoro (Spanish).
