'Hardest' maths problem 'solved'

Postby DarkUFO on Thu Aug 12, 2010 11:33 am

A computer scientist has solved one of the most difficult and complex mathematics problems in the world.

Its one of the seven problems set out by the Massachusetts-based Clay Mathematical Institute as the most difficult to solve. Vinay Deolalikar will net himself $1 million prize if his deductions are found to be correct.

Vinay Deolalikar, who works at the research arm of Hewlett-Packard in Palo Alto, California, believes he has solved the riddle of P vs NP in a move that could transform mankind’s use of computers as well as earn him a $1m (£650,000) prize.
