You Could Be the Next Winner!

Are you interested in a chance to win a cool $1 million?  Well, you could try playing the lottery, but the probability of you winning that is best saved for a whole other post.  Another way that you could take a shot at winning is by solving one of the seven Millennium Prize Problems.  The list and prize are the brain child of folks at the Clay Mathematics Institute of Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Actually, one of the problems has been solved.  Dr. Grigori Perelman is the winner of the $1 million dollar prize for solving the Poincare Conjecture.  Six other prizes are still up for grabs, though.  Just solve one of the following:

1. The Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer Conjecture

2. The Hodge Conjecture

3. Existence and Smoothness of the Navier–Stokes Equation

4. The P versus NP Problem

5. The Riemann Hypothesis

6. Quantum Yang–Mills Theory.

Good luck!
