List of unsolved problems in mathematics
Since the Renaissance, every century has seen the solution of more mathematical problems than the century before, and yet many mathematical problems, both major and minor, still remain unsolved.^{[1]} Prizes are often awarded for the solution to a longstanding problem, and lists of unsolved problems (such as the list of Millennium Prize Problems) receive considerable attention. Unsolved problems remain in multiple domains, including physics, computer science, algebra, additive and algebraic number theories, analysis, combinatorics, algebraic, discrete and Euclidean geometries, graph, group, model, number, set and Ramsey theories, dynamical systems, partial differential equations, and miscellaneous unsolved problems.

The conjecture was finally given an exceptionally elegant proof by A. Marcus and G. Tardos in 2004.

Working with Ben Green, he proved there are arbitrarily long arithmetic progressions of prime numbers—a result now known as the Green–Tao theorem.
