about Poincaré conjecture brifely described : en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poincar%C3%A9_conjecture
since there is a lots of mathematican in this nice forum , I think the discovery of Grigori Perelman is very hot subject for discussion ...
personaly i am so eager to know why he is the only one that could solve the problem ? and also what is the application and effect of this success ( maybe future ) ?
i have two quotes :
You confuse science with engineering, publication with patents. Intellectual property law does not recognize ownership of scientific truth. Your theory is true, or it isn't. You don't 'own' it. An apple does not need Isaac Newton's permission to fall to the ground. The primary protections for inventions are trade secret and patents. The primary protection for other intellectual property is copyright, and wise choices in how you use it and publish it.
