Abstract
Of all the demands that mathematics imposes on its practitioners, one of the most fundamental is that proofs ought to be correct. This is also a demand that is especially hard to fulfill, given the fragility and complexity of mathematical proof. This essay considers some of ways that mathematics supports reliable assessment, which is necessary to maintain the coherence and stability of the practice.
