Schoolboy ‘genius’ solves Newton’s puzzles unresolved for 350 years

Dresden, Germany: A 16-year school boy has solved puzzles posed by Sir Isaac Newton that have been baffling mathematicians for last 350 years.

Modest Shouryya Ray began solving complicated equations as a six year old but says he’s no genius, reports Daily Mail.

Shouryya Ray has been hailed as a genius after working out the problems set by Sir Isaac Newton.

The solved problems include two fundamental particle dynamics theories which physicists have previously been able to calculate only by using powerful computers.

His solutions mean that scientists can now calculate the flight path of a thrown ball and then predict how it will hit and bounce off a wall.

The genius boy came across the problems during a visit to Dresden University  with his school where professors claimed they were uncrackable.

‘I just asked myself, ‘Why not?’,’ explained Shouryya.

‘I think it was just schoolboy naivety. I didn’t believe there couldn’t be a solution,’ he added.

 Longing to become a better football player Ray says he has enjoyed what he calls ‘intrinsic beauty’ of maths.

Modestly Shouryya has pointed out he was weak points as a mathematician, and says he is not as competent in sport.

    What was the Puzzle

  2. Davybordy says:

    If the ball is made of glass and is hollow, and the wall is of steel, I can solve the puzzle by predicting how the ball will bounce too.

  3. An operative of CIA-RAW, which works for American rule over India and is responsible for all insurgencies and separatism in India — see What YouShouldKnowAboutRAWDOTblogspotDOTca — is posting repeated comments on Times of India on how this boy is Tamil because the scientific community in India is predominantly Tamil. Nobel Prizes, even in science, are awarded by Westerners to serve their imperialist interests. It is well known that Tagore got the Nobel Prize because he wrote ‘Jana Gana Mana’ as a hymn to the visiting British emperor. An Indian from Uttar Pradesh would easily merit half a dozen Nobel Prizes but an Economics Nobel was given to a mediocre man, Amartya Sen, as a substitute for the former to keep the Westerners’ crimes against the former covered up; see HowIndiasEconomyCanGrowDOTblogspotDOTca. Tamils are given Nobel Prizes because they are seen as less resisting of Westerners’ rule/domination of the subcontinent; the British got into the subcontinent primarily through Bengal and Madras. Jews get a lot of Nobel prizes because of their ferocious crimes; see ThisIsWhatTheJewsHaveBeenDoingDOTblogspotDOTca. On knowing this, Rajiv Gandhi when prime minister proposed that  India have its own ‘Nobel’ prizes, but RAW nixed it.  Satish Chandra

      Don’t worry,this boy is also Bengali who migrated 4 years ago from Kolkata.You know Asia’s best physicist and one of all time great SN Bosae did not win nobel but his work had already brought 9 persons Nobel.Jc Bose invented radio  before Marconi but did not patent his work that’s why missed out Nobel.and Tagore wrote jana gana long after winning Nobel.Don’t worry Bengali have created Best literary icon,physicist,science polymath,movie maker like satyajit Roy from entire Asia which you dumb deluded will not produce in 1000 years.
