He cuts the strands and continues deforming the manifold until eventually he is left with a collection of round three-dimensional spheres.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Stripped of their technical detail, Perelman’s results appear to prove a very deep theorem in mathematics known as Thurston’s geometrization conjecture.

Here is the standard form of the conjecture:. Completing the proof, Perelman takes any compact, simply connected, three-dimensional manifold without boundary and starts to run the Ricci flow.

Archived from the original on August 13, After nearly a century of effort by mathematicians, Grigori Perelman presented a proof of the conjecture in three papers made available in and on arXiv.

He proved that eventually the area is so small that any cut after the area is that small can only be chopping off three-dimensional spheres and not more complicated pieces.

Retrieved May 15, Saint Petersburg Mathematical Society Prize Perelman’s proof uses a modified version of a Poinacr flow program developed by Richard S.

Perelman proved this using something called the “Reduced Volume” which is closely related to an eigenvalue of a certain elliptic equation. Eigenvalues are closely related to vibration frequencies and are used in analyzing a famous problem: Dunwoody in April MathWorld news story, April 18,which was quickly found to be fundamentally flawed. It is uncertain whether his resignation from Steklov and subsequent seclusion mean that he has ceased to practice mathematics.

This conjecture was subsequently proof to the conjecture that every compact n -manifold is homotopy -equivalent to the n -sphere if and only if it is homeomorphic to the n -sphere.

It is my view that before Thurston ‘s work on hyperbolic 3-manifolds and. In dimension three, the conjecture had an uncertain reputation until the geometrization conjecture put it into a framework governing all 3-manifolds.

Such numbers are called eigenvalues of that operation.

Retrieved from ” https: Hamilton ‘s program for a proof of the conjecture. Hamilton created a list of possible singularities that could form but he was concerned that some singularities might lead to difficulties. Archived from the original on October 18, Robinson, Sara April 15, Archived from the original on April 19, Retrieved May 8, Essentially an eigenvalue is like a note cconjecture played by the manifold. Archived from the original on July 2, Perelman proved the conjecture by deforming the manifold using the Ricci gtigori which behaves similarly to the heat equation that describes the diffusion of heat through an object.


American Association for the Advancement of Science. According to William Thurston this normal form must take one of a small number of possibilities, each having a different kind of geometry, called Thurston model geometries. This, combined with the possibility of being awarded a Fields medal, led him to quit professional mathematics. However, in general the Ricci flow equations lead to singularities of the metric after a finite time.

A Genius and the Mathematical Breakthrough of conmecture Century. An equivalent form of the conjecture involves a coarser form of equivalence than homeomorphism called homotopy equivalence: Two weeks later, Perelman summed up the conversation as follows: The condition on the fundamental group turns out to be necessary and sufficient for finite time extinction, and in particular includes the case of trivial fundamental group.

Here, the three-sphere in a topologist’s sense is simply a generalization of the familiar two-dimensional sphere i.
