2.2 How Will it Be Resolved?

1. 61 thought P6=NP.

2. 9 thought P=NP.

3. 4 thought that it is independent. While no particular axiom system was mentioned, I assume

they think it is independent of ZFC.

4. 3 just stated that it is NOT independent of Primitive Recursive Arithmetic.

5. 1 said it would depend on the model.

6. 22 offered no opinion.

Stephen Cook selected VD’s proof based on bio not bcoz of VD’s P==NP or P !=NP convictions.

Very nice way of saying “Pigs cannot fly” == “P=NP”

]]>There are certain things that P != NP would make us much more likely to be able to do. They say one man’s trash is another’s treasure. In algorithms and complexity/crypto, one man’s difficulty is another’s success…

]]>For example in 3SAT problem we have to valuate variables to fulfill all alternatives of triples of these variables or their negations – look that

(x OR y) can be changed into optimizing

((x-1)^2+y^2)((x-1)^2+(y-1)^2)(x^2+(y-1)^2)

and analogously seven terms for alternative of three variables. Finding global minimum of sum of such polynomials for all terms, would solve our problem. (from www .scienceforums.net/topic/49246-four-dimensional-understanding-of-quantum-computers/ )

It’s going out of standard combinatorial techniques to continuous world using gradient methods, local minims removing methods, evolutionary algorithms … it’s completely different realm: numerical analysis.

Such proof could work on concrete valuations, but here we work between them.

Does/can it cover also continuous approaches?

*Frankly, the proof does not interest me much since its a proof of what we wont be able to do. It is better not to be accepted; if it is accepted I believe that people seeking challenges in this area will stop working hard and loose their motivation.*

I completely agree! Likewise, it doesn’t interest me much when people tell me I don’t have wings—their negativity discourages me from jumping off tall buildings.

]]>Also, I seriously condemn Turkish academic society for turning Turkish higher education sytem into a crap and corrupt environment, consisting of only vomiting the information you memorized in lectures into paper. Is there any one aware of this from Turkish math and CS scientists.

]]>You are making two assumptions:

You can recognize a pig, and understand what is “flying”. ]]>

Thanks a ton for answering my silly questions.
