Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Looking for a way to make $1 million? All you need to do is solve a math equation that has been boggling the minds of the world´s greatest mathematicians for over 20 years. Beal´s Conjecture, represented by A^x + B^y = C^z, is named after Andrew Beal, the same man who is offering up the seven-figure reward for anyone who can prove that when A, B and C are positive integers, and x, y and z are positive integers greater than 2...

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Some of us were born naturally inclined to understand numbers and their relationships to one another. The rest of us, sadly, depend on the work of these mathematically savvy individuals just to function in everyday life. As such, while some may have no issues understanding prime numbers and calculating them in their heads, others may get a headache once they count past 10. There are computers that exist, of course, which can...

Computing power leads to insights In his 1989 book "The Emperor's New Mind", Roger Penrose commented on the limitations on human knowledge with a striking example: He conjectured that we would most likely never know whether a string of 10 consecutive 7s appears in the digital expansion of the number pi. Just 8 years later, Yasumasa Kanada used a computer to find exactly that string, starting at the 22869046249th digit of pi. Penrose was certainly not alone in his inability to foresee the...

Finite formula found for partition numbers For centuries, some of the greatest names in math have tried to make sense of partition numbers, the basis for adding and counting. Many mathematicians added major pieces to the puzzle, but all of them fell short of a full theory to explain partitions. Instead, their work raised more questions about this fundamental area of math. On Friday, Emory mathematician Ken Ono will unveil new theories that answer these famous old questions. Ono and his...
