[SciAm] Proof Claimed for Deep Connection between Prime Numbers
Quote: Mathematician Shinichi Mochizuki of Kyoto University in Japan has released a 500page proof of the abc conjecture, which proposes a relationship between whole numbers — a 'Diophantine' problem. http://www.scientificamerican.com/articl...menumbers I'm not much for math, but I do know enough to know how big a deal this is. This could introduce new computing methods, aid physicists, and change textbooks the world over if it pans out. It might take decades for it to trickle down to our level. Let's just hope it's not a false alarm like it was in 2007. E ^{2} = (mc ^{2})^{2} + (pc )^{2} _{6}^{14}C → _{7}^{14}N + e^{–} + ̅ν_{e} 2 K_{(s)} + 2 H_{2}O_{(l)} → 2 KOH_{(aq)} + H_{2 (g)} + 196 kJ/mol It works, bitches.
