Problem Tags for Searching

I don't know if this would be a feasible idea to implement but many problems/solutions use some key concepts which are quite recurrent, not only in Brilliant but, in general, in math olympiads, and, for that matter, physics olympiads, and it would help to practice certain key concepts if they were organized in some sort of tag system.

For example, if somebody wanted to look at a list of problems where one could use induction, it might help if there was an easy search system to find solutions to past problems that use an inductive hypothesis.

This is also helpful for those writing articles where they use Brilliant problems. Looking forward to something of the sort!

Hi Ahaan,

We are moving in that direction, with having all of our problems have public share links from the url, so that in principal it is actually possible for anyone to see any Brilliant problem. We will be implementing a way in the near future to browse many problems on Brilliant by type, but it will probably be a while before a kind of tag/search system that comprehensively covers all of our problems with a roadmap, is in place.
