I remember in 2004 when I was trying to find a formalized mathematics project to contribute to I did a search on formalized mathematics in AMS Notices archives and I found nothing. The subject was not in the area of interest of mathematicians. December 2008 issue of Notices is devoted to “Formal Proof”. It looks like formalized mathematics is going mainstream. There are four articles by Thomas Hales, Georges Gonthier, John Harrison and Freek Wiedijk. I am planning to discuss them here in the next couple of days.
