Type For compact 2-dimensional surfaces without boundary, if every loop can be continuously tightened to a point, then the surface is topologically homeomorphic to a 2-sphere (usually just called a sphere). The Poincaré conjecture, proved by Grigori Perelman, asserts that the same is true for 3-dimensional spaces. Theorem No Geometric topology Henri Poincaré 1904 Grigori Perelman 2006 Generalized Poincaré conjecture

Usage

The Template:Infobox mathematical statement generates a right-hand side infobox, based on the specified parameters. To use this template, copy the following code in your article and fill in as appropriate:

```{{Infobox mathematical statement
| name =
| image =
| caption =
| type =
| open problem =
| field of mathematics =
| conjectured by =
| conjecture date =
| first proof by =
| first proof date =
| implied by =
| generalizations =
| consequences =
}}
```

Parameters

All parameters are optional.

`name`
Name at the top of the infobox; should be the name of the statement, e.g. `Strong multiplicity one theorem`, `Zorn's lemma`. Defaults to page name.
`image`
Image, e.g. `xxx.svg`.
`caption`
Caption.
`type`
The current type of statement, e.g. `Theorem`, `Conjecture`, `Lemma`, `Postulate`, `Axiom`.
`field of mathematics`
The branch(es) of mathematics to which the statement belong(s), e.g. `Number theory`, `Algebraic geometry and algebraic topology`.
`conjectured by`
Name of person(s) who first posed the statement.
`conjectured date`
Date(s) of when the statement was first posed.
`open problem`
Is this an open problem? Typical values are `Yes` or `No`, though something more specific could be put here (e.g. `Only one example known`, etc.)
`first proof by`
Name of person(s) who first proved the statement.
`first proof date`
Date(s) of when the statement was first proven.
`implied by`
Statement(s) that imply the current one.
`generalizations`
Statement(s) that generalize the current one.
`consequences`
Statement(s) that are implied by the current one.
