M490: Who Wants to be a Millionaire... by solving a really difficult math problem? in Splash! Fall 2009 (Oct. 10 - 11, 2009)
In celebration of new Millennium, the Clay Mathematics Institute offered $1 Million dollar to anybody who solves 7 selected mathematical problems. One of them has been solved, namely Poincare's Conjecture. We discuss one of the 6 unsolved problems, the Navier-Stokes Equation. While the subject in serious detail is apt for advanced graduate students, the class is intended only to give an idea of the significance of the Navier-Stokes Equation and its main difficulty.
