Millennium Problems

Millennium Problems

The Millennium Prize Problems are seven problems in mathematics that were stated by the Clay Mathematics Institute in 2000. As of November 2012, six of the problems remain unsolved. A correct solution to any of the problems results in a US$1,000,000 prize (sometimes called a Millennium Prize) being awarded by the institute. The Poincaré conjecture, the only Millennium Prize Problem to be solved so far, was solved by Grigori Perelman, but he declined the award in 2010.

The seven problems are:

  1. P versus NP problem
  2. Hodge conjecture
  3. Poincaré conjecture (solved)
  4. Riemann hypothesis
  5. Yang–Mills existence and mass gap
  6. Navier–Stokes existence and smoothness
  7. Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture

Famous quotes containing the words problems and/or millennium:

    I have said many times, and it is literally true, that there is absolutely nothing that could keep me in business, if my job were simply business to me. The human problems which I deal with every day—concerning employees as well as customers—are the problems that fascinate me, that seem important to me.
    Hortense Odlum (1892–?)

    At the end of one millennium and nine centuries of Christianity, it remains an unshakable assumption of the law in all Christian countries and of the moral judgment of Christians everywhere that if a man and a woman, entering a room together, close the door behind them, the man will come out sadder and the woman wiser.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)
