Description: A wiki "repository of mathematical know-how" that encompasses techniques ranging from the very general to those that concern particular subareas of mathematics. Browse problem-solving ideas by technique: for finding algorithms and algorithmic proofs, for approximating one thing by another, for classifying mathematical structures, for comparing sets and mathematical structures, for counting, for solving equations, for obtaining estimates, for proving existence, for producing explicit examples, for proving equalities and identities, for proving impossibility and nonexistence, for proving inequalities, for maximizing and minimizing, and for proving "for all" statements.
