Interesting Facts About Mathematics

Poincare conjecture is one of the mathematical theorems that has been demonstrated recently passably to the point that it can be taken as a full theorem. You can find various definitions for Poincare Conjecture on different websites.

What Is Poincare Conjecture?

For example, according to Wikipedia “In mathematics, the Poincare conjecture (French, ) is a theorem about the characterization of the three-dimensional sphere among three-dimensional manifolds.”

Poincare conjecture has been one of the seven Millennium Prize Problems and above all, this is the first ever and only Millennium Prize Problem that has been solved. The Poincare Conjecture states that if a compact 3-D manifold has no boundary and is simply connected, then it is said to be homeomorphic to a 3-D sphere. This conjecture is believed to have been formulated in 1904 by Henri Poincare, a French mathematician, as an elemental for achieving a perceptive of three dimensional shapes, 3-D sphere being the simplest one.

Grigory Perelman Facts

This conjecture was recently provided with a breakthrough proof by numerous new elements introduced by Perelman. He gained complete perceptive of singularity formation in Ricci flow, in addition to the manner of collapsing of the parts of a shape onto lower-dimensional spaces. He solved the problem by introducing entropy as a new quantity. This entropy measures the disorder in the space’s global geometry instead of measuring the disarray at the atomic level. Besides, he also pioneered a related local quantity, the L-functional, which was used that proved that the time between the configuration of singularities could not become smaller and smaller.

Perelman has enriched mathematics by deploy his new ideas and methods with utmost technicalities and describing the obtained results with elegant succinctness.  The interesting fact is that Grigory Perelman declined the prize of one million dollars which comes with the Fields medal which is equivalent of the Nobel Prize for mathematics. Perelman is currently unemployed living with his mom in a small apartment near St. Petersburg. Interfax, a Russian news agency, quoted him as saying. “To put it short,” he said, “the main reason is my disagreement with the organized mathematical community. I don’t like their decisions; I consider them unjust.”

  1. Declined?? Yeah right! I bet they *declined* to give it to him under some “technicality clause” that they made up. There’s got to be more to the story than he declined their prize because he “considers them unjust.” In fact, it should be the complete opposite! Either that math community awarding the money is a big phony or this guy is trying to stir up press to uncover some crazy scandal(s)!!

  2. I really do enjoy this theorem , as it is basically correct , but do they know how to make it applicable ? A clue to better understanding this theorem and how it works , is to look at and analyse the dimensional FLOWER OF LIFE and the TREE OF LIFE ! Which basically uses this theorem to advance thoughts through the different dimensions of space and multiverses , based on the three particle to one second theory , which then transcends your thoughts and actions throughout these dimensions and multiverses to the various ENLIGHTENED beings , who send them back to you individually , as you have asked ! Hence the Christmas tree = the tree of life ! In Pagan tradition ; you throw water on the tree and it gives you presents , inreality the water represents your life actions and thoughts for the year , and the presents you receive , are determined if you have been naughty or nice , therefore KARMA !!! Everyone receives a ‘present!’
