SCIENCE • MATH • Schoolboy 'genius' solves puzzles posed by Sir Isaac Newton that have baffled mathematicians for 350 years
Shouryya Ray, a 16 year old from Dresden, has solved two fundamental particle dynamics theories. Ray, who was born in India and moved to Germany when he was 12 claims “schoolboy naivety” led him to solve the puzzle. “I didn’t believe there couldn’t be a solution,” said boy. Many professors, mathematicians and physicists had previously stated the problems Ray solved were “uncrackable". The solution devised by Shouryya makes it possible to calculate the path of a projectile in Earths gravity while factoring in air resistance . . .
