# Microsoft Math

With Microsoft Math, students can learn to solve equations step-by-step, while gaining a better understanding of fundamental concepts in pre-algebra, algebra, trigonometry, physics, chemistry and calculus.

Microsoft Math  provides a set of mathematical tools that helps students get school work done quickly and easily. With a full-featured graphing calculator that’s designed to work just like a handheld calculator, Microsoft Math offers a wide range of additional tools to help students with complex mathematics.

Top features in Microsoft Math include: Continue reading “Microsoft Math”

# Fermat’s Last Theorem

Fermat’s Last Theorem, one of the most famous theorems in the history of mathematics, states that:

It is impossible to separate any power higher than the second into two like powers,

or, more formally:

If an integer n is greater than 2, then an + bn = cn has no solutions in non-zero integers a, b, and c.

With its published proof, this ‘theorem’ is sometimes called the Fermat–Wiles Theorem.

The theorem was proved by Sir Andrew Wiles for which he received the Nobel Prize! :O

# Poincaré conjecture

Grigori Yakovlevich Perelman (Russian: Григорий Яковлевич Перельман), born 13 June 1966 in Leningrad, USSR (now St. Petersburg, Russia), sometimes known as Grisha Perelman, is a Russian mathematician who has made landmark contributions to Riemannian geometry and geometric topology. In particular, it appears that he has proved Thurston’s geometrization conjecture. If so, this solves in the affirmative the famous Poincaré conjecture, posed in 1904 and regarded as one of the most important and difficult open problems in mathematics.

In August 2006, Perelman was awarded the Fields Medal,[1] for “his contributions to geometry and his revolutionary insights into the analytical and geometric structure of the Ricci flow“. The Fields Medal is widely considered to be the top honor a mathematician can receive. However, he declined to accept the award or appear at the congress. Continue reading “Poincaré conjecture”
