A one in four chance

Stephen Colbert complains he did not receive the Fields Medal even though he refuted the Poincare conjecture. (via Lance Fortnow.) Ze Frank had done it before but his treatment was judged incomplete.

    Luca,

    Did you attend Richard Stanley's plenary talk yesterday? If so, what was it like?

    I listen to several talks from the guys in the algebraic combinatorics group here in Reykjavík, and their work seems to have strong ties with TCS. We certainly like to have them as members in our small and modest TCS research centre :-)
