I've been looking for a copy of the *Kourovka notebook*. It's a collection of group theory problems ranging from PhD thesis level to open research problems.

Born February 16, 1965, the first copy was handwritten at the First All-Union Symposium on Group Theory.

The name derives from the Kourovka tourist centre near Sverdlovsk (where the Symposium took place).

However, sadly enough, I cannot find a modern edition of the *Kourovka notebook*! I would be eternally grateful to anyone that can point me in the right direction to obtaining a copy...

In its place, however, I have stumbled upon a few open source-ish gems:

- Open Problem Garden a collection of open problems (it's a wiki: help it grow!)
- Open Problems In Mathematics And Physics - what appears to be an index of other people's "open questions."
- Wikipedia's Page, good old wikipedia!
- Robert Wilson's Research problems, a collection of group theory problems. (Warning: javascript should be enabled for proper rendering...MathJax is used!)
