“arXiv” opposite is “viXra”.

The former “arXiv” is administered by Cornell University for Math paper publishing online. The traditional math journals would take 2 years to review and publish. 

The Russian Mathematician G. Perelman was fed up of the long and bureaucratic review process, sent his proof of the 100-year-old unsolved “Poincaré Conjecture” to arXiv site. Later it was recognized to be correct but Perelman refused to accept the Fields Medal and $1 million Clay Prize


The new site “viXra” is open to  anybody in the world while “arXiv” is still restricted to academics. 

This young Singapore mathematician William Wu proved his new found Math Theorem on “viXra” site:

Prove that: if p is prime, for any number k,
$latex boxed {(p – 1)^{p^k} equiv -1 mod {p^k}}$

[By using the Binomial Theorem and Legendre’s Theorem.]

Example: p = 3, k=2, 3^2=9

2^9 = 512…
