the thick book on top from my great-grandfather, something he studied in engineering.

always room for more books...

A woman being groped by a priest. Quite unusual.

He is evidently a pastor of a Detroit Pentecostal megachurch. They are more into groping women than the Catholic priests.

On a different note (and back on topic!) - some recent news from physics:

Researchers Solve First Problem From Mathematical Physics Wish List

"The newly solved problem relates to the quantum Hall effect. The Hall effect "was discovered in a groundbreaking experiment by Edwin Hall in 1879 that showed, for the first time, that electric currents in a metal can be deflected in the presence of a magnetic field perpendicular to the surface," a news release notes."

Here is the list, housed at Princeton:

Nice problem page. Several were interesting, but consider this one for a moment:

Impossibility Theorems in Mathematical Physics

From the page:

2. In quantum mechanics surely most of us heard it asserted that the Helium atom's energy levels cannot be determined "exactly" as those of the Hydrogen atom can. Again, what does"exactly"mean here? Could this be proved?

A good finance analog of this would be:

In mathematical finance surely most of us heard it asserted that the (Black-Scholes) American-style put values cannot be determined "exactly" as those of the European-style put can. Again, what does "exactly" mean here? Could this be proved?

I wonder if a similar good "wish list" could be constructed for mathematical finance? Googling "open problems in mathematical finance" turns up some random stuff ... Here is a somewhat related wikipedia page -- not particularly good IMO.

Kind of off-topic for this thread; maybe I will take it up in Student Forum ...

Remember: expect about 6 years (minimum?) from submitting to accepted proofs:

"Michalakis and Hastings's actual proof is of course more complex; the initial proof amounted to 40 pages of mathematical reasoning, but after a painstaking editing process, was whittled down to 30 pages. They submitted their solution in 2009 but it took time for the experts to digest the result, and the proof was not officially published in Communications in Mathematical Physics until 2015."

Good point, as good unsolved problems in math. physics (or indeed just mathematics) are quite non-trivial. Pretty sure that, even if a "good" problem list could be constructed for math. finance, most of the problems would not be that deep. Certainly nothing on the level of the Millennium Prize problems, or even on the level of the Princeton list that trackstar linked for physics. Having said that, I'd still like to see such a list.

That woman was the late Professor Sheila Tinney of UCD and erstwhile PhD student of Max Born in Edinburgh. And a real humble lady.

I was good friends with her children at TCD.

"is believed to make her the first Irish-born and -raised woman to receive a doctorate in the mathematical sciences"

"She was educated by the Dominican nuns," sound like a nice way to learn math...
