    I am surprised that nobody has posted yet of the hottest hews in PDE's, Penny Smith's proposed proof that smooth, "immortal" solutions of the N-S equations exist. If it pans out, this will collect one of the famous Clay Millennium Prizes, a cool million. Smith says that unlike Perelman, she'd take it. She would also be a shoo-in for one of the Fields medals to be given four years from now.

    See Woit, and especially this

    to the Woit post.

    Gee, I'm sorry neutrino. I looked for a thread to post about it, and didn't see one. Shall I delete this one?

    No. As a Mentor, shouldn't you be able to merge the two? As I said in that thread, I chose the most general category applicable. If you feel that it best suits the DE forum, then please do merge it with this one. :)

    She retracted it after finding a mistake.

    Let's hope that, as she implies on her website, it's not a killer.
