### Explore related topics

The Millennium Prize Problems are seven problems in mathematics that were stated by the Clay Mathematics Institute in 2000. As of September 2011, six of the problems remain unsolved. A correct solution to any of the problems results in a US$1,000,000 prize (sometimes called a Millennium Prize) being awarded by the institute. Only the Poincaré conjecture has been solved, by Grigori Perelman, who declined the award.

The Geeks' Guide to World Domination by Garth Sundem: Welcome to my GEEK brain. It has exactly 314.15 information slots. While I wish there were more slots, alas, there are not. And while I wish these slots were packed with things like mathematical proofs of Millennium Prize problems, the mechanics of teleportation using Einstein-...

The Millennium Prize Problems list: In order to celebrate mathematics in the new millennium, The Clay Mathematics Institute of Cambridge, Massachusetts (CMI) established seven Prize Problems. Following the decision of the Scientific Advisory Board, the Board of Directors of CMI designated a $7 million prize fund for the solution to these problems, with $1 million allocated to the solution of each problem. .pic ref:***** P vs NP Problem. *****

The P versus NP problem asks: can non-polynomial (NP) problems be reduced to easier and quicker to solve polynomial (P) problems? For example, consider the travelling salesman problem (determining most efficient route) for 1.9 million cities. The solution to the P versus NP problem is worth one million dollars since it is one of the millennium prize problems.

If you can solve one of the Millennium Prize Problems, you win a million dollars. These 7 math problems were presented by the Clay Mathematics Institute in the year 2000. Only one has since been solved, and anybody who provides a complete, correct...

Of the seven Millennium Prize Problems set by the Clay Mathematics Institute, six have yet to be solved, as of October 2014. 1.P versus NP 2.Hodge conjecture 3.Riemann hypothesis 4.Yang–Mills existence and mass gap 5.Navier–Stokes existence and smoothness 6.Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture.

The Hodge Conjecture asks the question: to what extent can we approximate the shape of a given object by gluing together simple geometric building blocks of increasing dimension? Its solution is worth a million dollars since it is one of the millennium prize problems.
