The Poincaré conjecture has been in the news lately. Russian mathematician Grigori Perelman submitted a proof 3 years ago claiming that he had proved the famous conjecture. In August, he won a prestigious Fields medal for his achievement.
But what is the Poincaré conjecture? Here's how geometer Jeff Weeks describes it: "Basically, it's a conjecture about what the simplest possible space is in each dimension."
"In two dimensions, for surfaces, this has been known for a while [a sphere], but it gets much harder in three dimensions," he adds.
This description comes from a recent broadcast on the University of Arkansas public radio station KUAF 91.3 FM. Since 2004, mathematician Chaim GoodmanStrauss has been presenting newsy and entertaining math snippets on a program hosted by Kyle Kellams. These weekly segments, called "Math Factor," are now available as podcasts (http://comp.uark.edu/~strauss/mathfactor/podcast/MathFactor.xml).
