The runners-up are thus more interesting. Original link via BBC. Breakthrough of the year: The Runners-up ← Heavier weight ≠ greater energy cost → Hardening of the categories 3 replies on “Science mag: Breakthrough of the year” The dust of controversy on who actually solved Poincaré conjecture hasn’t settled yet or has it? Since I have no reason to believe Grigori Perelman didn’t solve it, I accept he did! What do you think? Deep down I also think the same way. But there are few Chinese mathematicians who say that Grigori started it, and it is they who finished the proof. I am all confused on the meaning of “Proof”! Comments are closed.
