An Indian-born teenager has won a research award for solving a mathematical problem first posed by Sir Isaac Newton more than 300 years ago that has baffled mathematicians ever since.The solution devised by Shouryya Ray, 16, makes it possible to calculate exactly the path of a projectile under gravity and subject to air resistance.http://www.canada.com/technology/Teen+solves+Newton+year+rid...nl
The solution devised by Shouryya Ray...Anybody have a link that provides the math? So far lots of puff pieces but no details.-IGU-
Anybody have a link that provides the math? So far lots of puff pieces but no details.Lots of people have been asking this question, all over the world. So far no details. However, the German-language webpage for the competition clearly states that he won SECOND place, not first place. That leads me to believe that the result is not as breath-taking as the press is making it sound.http://www.jufo-dresden.de/projekt/teilnehmer/matheinfo/m1Posters on the Stack Exchange are skeptical. I am too.http://math.stackexchange.com/questions/150242/teenager-solv...Loren
