Grigory Perelman and the Poincare Conjecture

December 20th, 2009 12:17 admin Leave a comment Go to comments

EagleHasLanded writes Russian mathematician Grigory Perelman doesn’t talk to journalists. Actually, he doesn’t talk to anyone anymore. So we’ll have to settle for insights via his biographer, Masha Gessen, who, strangely enough, has never talked to him either. But she has spoken with just about everyone who has ever had any significant interaction with Perelman, and the result is the book Perfect Rigor, which more than adequately explains why Perelman has gone into self-imposed exile, and why he probably won’t collect the million dollars he won by solving the Poincare Conjecture.”
