ABC@home

ABC@home is a mathematical project searching for abc-triples. An abc-triple consists of 3 numbers satisfying certain conditions. These triples might be helpful in proving the ABC-conjecture, one of the holy grails of mathematics, because of its interesting consequences.

Chess960@home

Chess960@home is a project doing research in a novel chess variant, Chess960, also called Fischer Random Chess. The difference with normal chess is that the order of the pieces is determined randomly, and very is little known about opening theory. Chess960@home is doing research to get some more structure in the opening.

PrimeGrid

Prime Numbers are of great interest to mathematicians for a variety of reasons. Primes also play a central role in the cryptographic systems which are used for computer security. Through the study of Prime Numbers it can be shown how much processing is required to crack an encryption code and thus to determine whether current security schemes are sufficiently secure.

SETI@home

SETI@home is a scientific experiment that uses Internet-connected computers in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). One approach, known as radio SETI, uses radio telescopes to listen for narrow-bandwidth radio signals from space. Such signals are not known to occur naturally, so a detection would provide evidence of extraterrestrial technology.
