More on the Poincare conjecture

The Strings 2006 conference is under way in Beijing, and yesterday Field Medalist Yau Shing-Tung gave a popular talk on the Poincare conjecture. Yau's talk was preceded by taped remarks by Richard Hamilton. A transcript of Hamilton's remarks is here, the People's Daily article is here and a first-hand account is here.

    Isn't it odd that the popular press hasn't picked up on this at all? I guess they considered it solved when Perelman published his original papers.
