Sum of three cubes for 42 finally solved—using real life planetary computer
Hot on the heels of the ground-breaking 'Sum-Of-Three-Cubes' solution for the number 33, a team led by the University of Bristol and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has solved the final piece of the famous 65-year-old maths puzzle with an answer for the most elusive number of all—42.
According to a series of experiments by Yale University and University of Bath researchers, ordinary people see beauty in complex mathematical arguments in the same way they can appreciate a piano sonata.
