Mukhtarbay Otelbayev claims to have proven the Navier-Stokes existence and smoothness problem, which is one of the 7 Millennium Prize Problem. You can read the article here

The Poincare conjecture has already been solved by Grigori Perelman. The remaining problems are:

1. P versus NP

2. The Hodge conjecture

3. The Riemann hypothesis

4. Yang-Mills existence and mass gap

5. The Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

TopNewestWhat's great about Grigori Perelman is that he declined the prize, claiming it was "irrelevant".

I actually won't be surprised if one of the people in the brilliant community proved one of those problems...

Don't bet on it. There is an immense difference between these open mathematics problems and the kinds that we do for sport.

I wish to add to what Michael Tong said.

The kinds of problems we do here on Brilliant are more math puzzles than what most mathematicians, in my opinion, would actually call "mathematics." The Millennium Problems are esoteric and, in every way you can look at them, beautiful. They are not just simple computations or exercises in your ability to manipulate equations. They are problems that the greatest geniuses of the human race have not yet been able to solve.

That kind of mathematics is beautiful, not just because of aesthetics, but because it is almost addictive. Spend one day in that kind of mathematics. Just TRY looking through some of those problems. You'll be hooked.

For those of you interested, I've been attempting to translate his solution. The paper is here.

Since Perelman refused the $1 million prize, the $7 million prize should be divided equal for the 6 remaining problems. #Just

How about Beal's conjecture?

I will wait until the experts have verified that it is indeed the correct solution.

Aww.. he failed, he had a serious flaw in his solution. He's trying to correct it.

Aww, that's sad :(

still waiting for someone to prove GRH...

Are any of these millenium prize problems as important as GRH (generalized riemann hypothesis)? I don't know much about these current math topics but they don't look vastly important to me.
