Math Problems

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:

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