FAQ

  • What is the Millennium Prized Problems?

The Millennium Prize Problems refer to the seven unsolved mathematical problems that existed in the year 2000. On that very event, no mathematical equations were solved. But ever since then, one man, by the name of Grigori Perelman, a Russian mathematician solved one of the problems stated on the occasion.

  • What were the seven unsolved problems in mathematics?

The unsolved mathematical problems that were recognized by the Clay Mathematics Institute were the Hodge conjecture, P versus NP problem, Yang-Mills existence and mass gap, Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture, Navier–Stokes existence and smoothness, Poincaré conjecture, and the Riemann hypothesis. They have long stood the test of time and have been used in a number of other postulates but they were never solved.

  • When was the exact date when the unsolved mathematical questions were stated?

It was on the 24th of May in the year 2000 when Clay Mathematics Insitute stated the seven unsolved mathematical equations. This is in honor of David Hilbert and his famous speech to the International Congress of Mathematicians in the 1900s. Because of Hilbert’s announcement of the then 23 unsolved problems in mathematics, more mathematicians took the time and effort to solve these problems. These also paved the way for the development of other mathematical equations and also other topics. Solving the problems was no Amsterdam holiday but the best and brightest minds were able to provide concrete solutions to these seemingly unsolvable equations.

  • From what branch of mathematics were the problems from?

The problems came from a variety of subcategories of science and mathematics. It was a combination of computer science, physics, algebraic geometry, topology, and number theory.

  • What can you find useful from this website?

This website is all about the seven problems that were stated by the Institute in the year 2000. We aim to encourage more mathematicians and scientists to have a go at these problems and see if they can solve any of them by themselves.
