e Groups_ (_CFSG_)\,\nalso known as the _enormous theorem_\, is a highligh
t of 20th-century\nmathematics\, both with respect to its mathematical con
tent and to the\ncomplex process of proving the result. From a historical
perspective\,\nit offers an excellent opportunity to focus on more general
\ndevelopments in the history of 20th-century mathematics\, such as\nchang
ing perceptions of what a mathematical proof is\, the character\nand the m
any contexts of mathematics as an intergenerational and\ninternational col
laborative enterprise\, and the impact of Cold War\nresearch policies on _
CFSG_/pure mathematics. We consider the _CFSG_\nas (possibly) the first in
stant of what we tentatively call _big\nmathematics_ in this project. The
existing proof of the _CFSG_ is\nestimated to be spread on somewhere betwe
en 10.000 and 15.000 journal\npages in ca. 500 separate articles written b
y more than 100\nmathematicians. The unprecedented nature of this enterpri
se from the\n1950s until the 1980s is quite tangible: the extraordinarily
large\nnumber of mathematicians involved internationally (working as a tea
m)\,\nthe difficulty and complexity of the problem\, the use of computers
\nwithin the proof\, the effect of the Cold War on _CFSG_/pure\nmathematic
s (e.g. via new funding possibilities by both civil and\nmilitary agencies
). The history of _CFSG_ has to be studied as a key\nexample of the impact
of politics on research in pure mathematics in\nthe Cold War\, namely via
new possibilities of funding research in\ngeneral and of mathematical res
earch in particular\, a largely\nunexplored territory\, but crucial for _C
FSG_. The historical analysis\nwill be guided by three themes: suitability
of _big mathematics_ as an\nanalytical concept\, the role of self-histori
cization in _CFSG_\, and\nthe changing nature of proof in mathematics in t
he second half of the\n20th century.\n\nABOUT THE PANEL DISCUSSION: The
re is much opportunity for\ncollaboration between mathematicians and histo
rians to examine\ntogether the recent history of mathematics. The practic
e of\nmathematics has changed greatly over the course of the twentieth\nce
ntury\, and even more rapidly in recent years with the rise of\ncomputing
and the internet. A deeper understanding of how cultural\,\nintellectual\,
political\, and social factors have interacted with and\nshaped the recen
t evolution of the discipline would be valuable both\nas intellectual hist
ory\, and to inform the way mathematicians\nthemselves think about their s
ubject and anticipate to its future.\n This panel will look at the difficu
lties and possibilities of such\ncollaborative historical work.\n\n_If you
