Wow!

Just came back from attending a short talk by a (very) young guy who is a professor at UCSD. I will spare you the agony of telling you what he was talking about, although it was not horribly technical.

But just listening to some basic history of the subject matter makes me appreciate the amount of vision and daring some of these mathematicians in the 60s had just to go about putting forth conjectures that has become a guiding philosophy in research nowadays.

Wow! Mathematics isn’t beautiful, its daring.

    reminds me a bit of that movie, “Good Will Hunting” where the genius dude helps the Prof with finite math. quite fascinating all that stuff.
