It looks like the New York Times has a story today about the proof of the Poincaré Conjecture. You can read the article here. I just love how the media always plays up the “insatiably crazed introvert” image of mathematicians, in this case overly dramatizing Grigory Perelman, the Russian mathematician responsible for much of the proof methodology. I wrote about this a while back, but this article definitely gives a much more in-depth explanation of the history of the conjecture. Happy reading everyone!
