Pi Day is celebrated around the world on the 14th day of the 3rd month. The date representation of 3.14 is the most basic ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, but it also has this going for it:

314 backward

Which, of course, means that mathematicians everywhere love their pi.

In celebration of Pi Day we have collected the most popular papers of 2016 from Forum of Mathematics, Pi (FMP), an open access alternative to leading generalist mathematics journals. FMP’s Mathematics Citation Quotient – a ratio of citations to papers published in the five previous years – was a robust 4.00 in 2015.

In honor of this special day for mathematics nerds everywhere, enjoy reading Forum of Mathematics, Pi’s ten most popular papers from 2016.

  1. Existence of q-analogs of Steiner Systems
  2. An Alternate Proof of Wise’s Malnormal Special Quotient Theorem
  3. Global Uniqueness for the Calderón Problem with Lipschitz Conductivities
  4. Paracontrolled Distributions and Singular PDES
  5. Metrix XpInequalities
  6. The α-invariant and Thompson’s Conjecture
  7. Modified Scattering for the Cubic Schrödinger Equation on Product Spaces and Applications
  8. p-Adic Hodge Theory for Rigid-Analytical Varieties
  9. Kudla’s Modularity Conjecture and Formal Fourier – Jacobi Series
  10. p-Adic Hodge Theory for Rigid-Analytical Varieties – Corrigendum
