Open Problems for Undergraduates
Open Problems by Area
This is a collection of open problems in Discrete Mathematics which
are currently being researched by members of the DIMACS community.
These problems are easily stated, require little mathematical
background, and may readily be understood and worked on by anyone
who is eager to think about interesting and unsolved mathematical
Some of these problems are quite hard and have been open for a long
time. Others are newer. For further information on a particular
problem, you may write to the associated researcher.
Although these problems are intended for undergraduates, it is
expected that high school students, teachers, graduate students and
professional mathematicians will be drawn to this collection. This is
Each of these problems is associated
with some member of DIMACS. If you have any questions, comments,
insights or solutions, please send email to the researcher who is
listed with the problem.
