Vinay Deolalikar is standing by his {\mathsf{P} \neq \mathsf{NP}} claim and proof. He and I have been exchanging e-mails, and as noted in the. Possible fatal flaws in the finite model part of Deolalikar’s proof Neil Immerman is one of the world’s experts on Finite Model Theory. He used. An update on the P not equal to NP proof Timothy Gowers, Gil Kalai, Ken Regan, Terence Tao, and Suresh Venkatasubramanian are some of.

To agree with Vaughn above there are many proofs which were initially considered unclear but which were later found to be correct.

Something is still fishy here. Create a free website or blog at WordPress.

Namely, it would obviously mean that in spite of the undecidability of the Entscheidungsproblemthe mental work of a mathematician concerning Yes-or-No questions could be completely replaced by seolalikar machine. Did I misread these papers, and they do claim such a thing? She then uses this cool lemma to solve the Riemann Hypothesis.

P versus NP problem

You must be crazy to think that he is going to read and much less, answer emails these days! In the critical regime it takes an exp number of these parameters to specify the joint distribution. I believe his remark does not show what he claims. The internet has changed the way things are done a bit, but not so much after all, this is still refereeing and animated discussions etc.

Your point that 1 is difficult to prove is likely true and well taken; but even if it is proved, so what? Have the community at large work hard filling the details. I well know Vinay to be far from crazy and disrespectful. Possible claim 2 seems unplausible: However, this is so far off topic that anyone who deeolalikar to discuss it may contact me via my dated but still functional Deokalikar page, linked to my name.


These are all answered by a most emphatic NO, no way, not in a million years. Just one other note—we mentioned right away last Sunday that the paper does not even state a concrete deterministic time lower bound for SAT. You use the relation as your successor relation. Consider a “pseudorandom polynomial circuit” [math]f: Given that the proof sketch of P! The paper does not report on actual runs of the algorithm, which seems like it should be easy to program.

Perhaps I was getting Galois mixed up with Cauchy?

Deolalikar Responds To Issues About His P≠NP Proof

But again, all this is from the feeling one can get from reading bp imprecise statement of the strategy as it is presented in the deopalikar, so I could be shown wrong. The parameters correspond to cliques or potentials that one can define arbitrarily.

Nice analogy, except that mountain-climbing rescue efforts are a burden on society and benefit nobody other than the person being rescued. I found the environment to be tremendously empowering for innovation, ceolalikar my boss was really encouraging! How could you achieve this? Not to flog this too much, but for context, see http: Given the current interest in the subject matters discussed on this page, it would be good to start collecting a list of references where people can learn more about such topics.

Thanks for this ref defining differences between recursiveness n; measurements of physics which show how things actually work in practice I may be coming round to a different perspective;time and analysis deolalioar a priori for all involved thats clear.


For that, we add more auxiliary variables in the following way. It’s completely different kingdom – numerical analysis – I don’t believe such proof could really cover? Hope he must get a reward from the nation as a best teacher! There were dozens of full-page ads in every issue, literally begging young people to accept good, family-supporting jobs in math, science, and engineering … and offering to pay for their graduate educations at top-rate schools too.

The reduction that Deolalikar proposes is standard but definitely does not preserve anything on which we can apply Hanf-Gaifman locality. Email Required, but never shown. Doelalikar most partial solutions cannot be so extended, it might not imply even a hardness on average.

You are also at risk of losing the momentum, the interest in the question might vanish as quickly at it built up.

Before choosing a program, it is important to read the comments on the first application. Create a free website or blog at WordPress. Even this appears to be impossible, since the primes have some important non-randomness properties such as not containing any even numbers greater than dfolalikar.

We wrote suggestions 1 and 3 independently, but you can marry them to say: The talk, titled Computationally Difficult Problems: Deolaoikar it really true that 1 is relatively uncontroversial? Instead, it is simply a misunderstanding caused by a lack of rigor and a lack of professional mathematical colleagues against whom he can check his ideas. This is still a hard unconditional lower bound argument.
