Anonymous Coward User ID: 601026 United States 03/07/2009 02:11 PM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | There are many unsolved problems in mathematics. Some prominent outstanding unsolved problems (as well as some which are not necessarily so well known) include Quoting: 1. The Goldbach conjecture. 2. The Riemann hypothesis. 3. The conjecture that there exists a Hadamard matrix for every positive multiple of 4. 4. The twin prime conjecture (i.e., the conjecture that there are an infinite number of twin primes). 5. Determination of whether NP-problems are actually P-problems. 6. The Collatz problem. 7. Proof that the 196-algorithm does not terminate when applied to the number 196. 8. Proof that 10 is a solitary number. 9. Finding a formula for the probability that two elements chosen at random generate the symmetric group S_n. 10. Solving the happy end problem for arbitrary n. 11. Finding an Euler brick whose space diagonal is also an integer. 12. Proving which numbers can be represented as a sum of three or four (positive or negative) cubic numbers. 13. Lehmer's Mahler measure problem and Lehmer's totient problem on the existence of composite numbers n such that phi(n)|(n-1), where phi(n) is the totient function. 14. Determining if the Euler-Mascheroni constant is irrational. 15. Deriving an analytic form for the square site percolation threshold. 16. Determining if any odd perfect numbers exist. The Clay Mathematics Institute ( [link to www.claymath.org] of Cambridge, Massachusetts (CMI) has named seven "Millennium Prize Problems," selected by focusing on important classic questions in mathematics that have resisted solution over the years. A $7 million prize fund has been established for the solution to these problems, with $1 million allocated to each. The problems consist of the Riemann hypothesis, Poincaré conjecture, Hodge conjecture, Swinnerton-Dyer Conjecture, solution of the Navier-Stokes equations, formulation of Yang-Mills theory, and determination of whether NP-problems are actually P-problems.

Anonymous Coward User ID: 636907 Germany 03/17/2009 01:28 PM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | Alright, I need some good hardest questions ever. Quoting: We've all heard the one, "Is the glass half empty, or half full" or "tell me about yourself" or "what is the meaning of life?" I need some new ones, care to ask a really hard question? (my answers-if anyone cares-to the above questions, 1. depends on whats in the glass---if its beer, half empty. The bartender always tops ya off. 2. stupid interview question...it's a trick question. 3. to live life to fullest) so give me some good hard questions.. Not AC, but OP 479589WHO AM I??? |

READY?!?!?! <----that's the question by the way. And I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT YOU WERE NOT. NOW. Here's the next ultimate question. WHY? the answer, "WHY NOT." This should settle all your questioning from here on out. This is TRUE WISDOM. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 381304Why not? Brilliant! |

Anonymous Coward User ID: 347151 United States 05/17/2009 01:47 AM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | Can something be created from nothing? The obvious answer is NO, however if that's the case, then how did the universe come into existence? Since we know that the universe exists, then it IS possible to create something from nothing. Therefore, the hardest question to answer is: How can something be created from nothing??? |

If it was full and you take some out, it is half empty. The lesson is to know where you came from, to know who you are. Some people think that question is a test of ones optimism. |

Anonymous Coward User ID: 680620 United States 05/17/2009 09:33 AM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | What is Love? Quoting: Woman On The EdgeLove is something which will shake you to your core Something which makes whatever who you are crumble in whom ever you will be Something which gave new meaning to space and time as hell or heaven because it is all built up within you Moment where you simply want to get lost because it is such beautiful to taste the unknown While your eyes radiating the heat of the blood running in your vein It is, the only place you will call home, while you keep walking a journey To dance under the moonlight |

I say burn all of your bridges while you still have control of the flame. We are like flies crawling across the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel: We cannot see what angels and gods lie underneath the threshold of our perceptions. We do not live in reality; we live in our paradigms, our habituated perceptions, our illusions; the illusions we share through culture we call reality, but the true historical reality of our condition is invisible to us.” |
