Abstract for
Doron Zeilberger,
Proof of the Alternating Sign Matrix Conjecture
The number of $n \times n$ matrices whose
entries are either $-1$, $0$, or $1$, whose row- and column- sums
are all $1$, and such that in every row and every column the non-zero
entries alternate in sign, is proved to be
$$[1!4! \dots (3n-2)!] \over [n!(n+1)! \dots (2n-1)!],$$
as conjectured by Mills, Robbins, and Rumsey.
