  • The latest designs by Ross Kang
    One of the oldest problems in combinatorics — dating back to mid-nineteenth century work of, independently, Plëucker, Kirkman and Steiner — asserts the existence of what are referred to as ‘Steiner systems’ (subject essentially to only some simple divisibility conditions). These highly symmetric structures are foundational to the field of combinatorial design theory. Until this year, this existence conjecture has remained largely open. In January 2014, Peter Keevash announced a proof of the conjecture, which also confirms a more general conjecture for designs. In this article Ross Kang describes the conjecture and the solution of Keevash.
  • All articles of the fifth series are available online one year after publication.

    The Nieuw Archief voor Wiskunde is the quarterly journal of the Royal Dutch Mathematical Society. The journal is aimed at anyone who is involved with mathematics professionally, as an academic or industrial researcher, student, teacher, journalist or policymaker. Its goal is to report on developments in mathematics in general and in the Dutch mathematical community in particular.
