In the document Comments on some recentwork by Shouryya Ray by Prof. . To conclude, Shouryya Ray has obtained analytic solutions of the problem (1). 27 May Shouryya Ray worked out how to calculate exactly the path of a projectile ” When it was explained to us that the problems had no solutions. 21 Jun Shouryya Ray, Year-Old ‘Genius,’ Didn’t Actually Solve Newton’s Ray’s solutions allegedly allowed for exact calculation of a projectile’s.

Teenager solves Newton dynamics problem – where is the paper? This paper has so far only the analytical solution of this approximate or numerical targets for the problems solved.

Even more excellent if you translate it to English!

Physics > Classical Physics

Ray also managed to solve an additional problem which involves the collision of a body with a wall, that was posed in the 19th century. Thus the drag acceleration due only to friction is [the preceding should probably read “the impedance acceleration due to friction plus gravity is”]:. But it still is amazing, especially at such a young age.

Not two years — the first version was posted in May Everyone is simply running after the boy and his origin. Given the level of prerequisites that he had, he made great progress.

This accepted answer on physics. It seems the achievement has been highly blown out of proportion by the media.


How the Media Misunderstood Shouryya Ray’s Solution

The underlying law was discovered by Newton 17th century. A German year old has become a worldwide phenomenon and the first person who managed to solve a mathematical problem that Sir Isaac Newton posed more than years ago.

If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question. The main contribution, which mattered to me, was buried in the pages. First, the two problems are solved fully analytically generalized context, they are then compared with numerical solutions and, finally, on the basis of the analytical solutions derived statements about the physical behavior. Today I found this on arxiv.

Newton posed this problem years ago, which relates to movement of rwy through the air. This might have misled Shouryya Ray rqy was not aware of the classical theory ry ordinary differential equations. But yeah, my comment does look confusing, as the exact same equation isn’t there. Would you like to answer one of these unanswered questions instead? Of course they show what the interest has been.

Solution to “Newton’s Math Problem” by Shouryya Ray ~ My Frame of Reference

Yahoo, Google, Bing, all of them capturing the same news item! Online newspapers of India tend to trumpet achievements of those who live there or were born there. The enthusiastic, but information-scarce articles are in German newspapers. Here is the winner abstract the webpage was translated using Google translator in Chrome: My Frame of Reference.


The solution devised by Shouryya Ray, 16, makes it possible to calculate exactly the path of a projectile under gravity and subject to air resistance. Moreover, the theory of average differential equations raay that equation can be solved and that solution is presented in particular form.

If the right-hand side is “const. We are left to see, what kind of discoveries will Rqy make in the future. It’s impressing because he found a way to solve the differential equation while Parker stopped at the hairy integral at the end of the “Exact Solutions” section. There are good reasons for all those factors of two. They arise from any equation described by Newton’s second law and its generalizations.

Day 27 ’12 at I have been unable to locate his findings via the Internet. So it’s hard to imagine what is supposedly so impressive. Nevertheless all his steps are basically known to eolution and we emphasize that he did not solve an open problem posed by Newton. Comments on four recent papers. All I could find was the news with variation of the title: It’s like a hint.
