Your wrong man.


P = NP

P = 1, N = 1

1 = 1 x 1

1 = 1

I win, can i get that 1mil now?

I said computer science. And yes, mathematics is universal but explaining it is not. When someone is trying to teach you how to do RSA encryption they can't be speaking half another language.
Luckily my discrete math teacher was american and very articulate. He made most people sound like bumbling *******. And I prefer my professors that way.
It may sound a little messed up but whenever I can I take the professor that can speak proper English over the other one.
The professor needs to be able to be understood.

And btw, I spent part of my senior year in highschool at a community college and all the professors there were good and understandable. I can't say the same about all professors at the state colleges.

Haha that is true for me also.

I meant it to be as a joke. Maybe I should have left a smiley

Anyways, I took AP Calc my senior year with an (football-loving) American teacher. And your right, he did do an excellent job at articulating what Reimann Sums were

Retaking Calculus I at my community college was cake. I wasn't even there for some of the classes for the fact that I knew them.

Now as for this equation... P=NP?

Whats that all about?

wouldn't it be funny if one of the most pressing questions in a field of study was solved in an internet discussion board.

george dantzig solved a famous, unsolved math problem when he thought it was assigned as homework

P is a type of problem that is quickly solved by a computer. NP is a type of problem that can be quickly checked.

P = NP means a problem can be quickly solved and quickly checked by a computer. Some people think that is not possible so P != NP.

Think about it like this:

An NP problem is does 5 + 7 + 9 = 21?

A P problem is what 3 positive integers add up to 21?

This doesn't count. The value of P and N have to be different. You changed the equation to P = PP. The value of P has to be 0 and the value of N can be any number. Think simple. Here's the equation again...

P = PN

If P = 0 and N = any number, this is what it looks like...

0 = 0 x N

It's simple. Then again you can do P is any value and N is 1 so there are countless solutions. Like...

P=0 N=Any #

or

P=Any # N=1

We have these problems in middle school .


Edit - I was just thinking P stands for Problem and NP stands for No Problem .

$1m doesn't seem to be alot if this problem is really that difficult. Is this problem currently unsolvable or does it just take a lot of computational power to do it? If it's the latter, wouldn't the more logical choice be simply wait for the CPU and GPU to improve?

It's not a question of having enough computational power per se - you should go back and read the explanations some people have posted about what P vs NP means.
edit: that sounds a little mean, didn't really intend that but I can't think of another way to phrase it
