\begin{conjecture} % Enter your conjecture in LaTeX % You may change "conjecture" to "question" or "problem" if you prefer. There exists a finite lattice that is not an interval in the subgroup lattice of a finite group. \end{conjecture}

% You may use many features of TeX, such as % arbitrary math (between $...$ and $$...$$) % \begin{theorem}...\end{theorem} environment, also works for question, problem, conjecture, ... % % Our special features: % Links to wikipedia: \Def {mathematics} or \Def[coloring]{Graph_coloring} % General web links: \href [The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences]{http://www.research.att.com/~njas/sequences/} This would settle the Finite Lattice Representation Problem.
