The Poincare Conjecture. Explanation of the Poincare Conjecture.

Tags: The Poincare Conjecture, Poincaré Conjecture

Is it possible to deduce the shape of the universe without stepping outside of it? Henri Poincaré thought so. Similar to how the Greeks were able to discern the spherical nature of the earth (and even its rough diameter) using mathematics, he proposed th...
