title korean math expert solves one of most intractable problems 100
in other news .... the yang-mills existence and mass gap problem one of the most famous
intractable problems in mathematics is a problem no more.
it's been solved by a korean scientist. arirang's hwang ji-hye has the details. in
2000... the clay mathematics institute listed seven problems that math experts were str
uggling to solve and the institute put up an offer of one-million u.s. dollars... to
the person who could provide a solution to any of them.
the only millennium prize problem to be sol ved since then came from russian mathemat
ician grigori perelman who solved the poin care conjecture in 2002...
until now. professor cho yong-min of konkuk university
has startled the scientific world by claim ing he's solved the yang-mills existence and
mass gap problem.
the universe is made of materials composed of different kinds of mass. but the theory
says that mass does not exist in the univers e. so the problem is about how to explain
such a contradiction.
professor cho has been studying the yang- mills existence and mass gap problem since
1975... when he was a doctoral student. the japanese high energy accelerator research
organization has verified professor cho's claim using a super computer.
the theory will be continually verified over the next two years... and if no fault is found
professor cho will be one-million dollars richer.
