    Possible proof that P != NP

    Mark Chu-Carroll on his blog Good Math, Bad Math. reports what may be significant progress on P=NP? (unfortunately I cannot open the link to the paper from work so I will link to MarkCC's blog posting)

    Very exciting, to be sure! We'll wait and see if the proof is correct.
