Pointcare Conjecture - Grigory Perelman's Proof

  1. Jan 1, 2007 #1

    I'm far from a skilled mathematician and I was wondering what greater minds than mine thought of Perelman's proof of the Pointcare conjecture. Also, if you could offer a brief explanation of the conjecture it would be very much appreciated.

    Here is a link to a bried article on Perleman and the conjecture:

    What reprecussions will proving this conjecture mean to you and me in terms of practical applications?

    john morgan of columbia says the proof is correct, and he has written a more detailed version of it. if john morgan believes it then i believe it is correct.
