People learn calculus so that after someone like Einstein writes down Einstein's equation other people like Schwarzschild, Nordstrom, Kerr, Reissner, etx, can use calculus to find the solutions of the equation. The equation itself isn't so useful if no one ever solves it.

Open your calculus textbook and start going through the "application" problems, and you'll have your answer. Yes, even if you're a CS major, you'll find some relevant ones. Also, pay attention in your physics class, where you should be using it all over the place.
I think more than half the questions on this board wouldn't even need to be asked if people just paid attention to what they're supposedly studying.

2) If under age 40 (this is most likely; math is a young man's game), they would very probably be awarded a Fields medal.
3) They would become a hot commodity in the mathematical community, and have their pick of institutions to do research/teach at. In the event that the person did not have a PhD, they could easily submit their proof as their dissertation (after doing other appropriate coursework/research).
4) On the other hand, they might go crazy/paranoid from the celebrity (very smart people are half-crazy to begin with), and they would likely be accused (perhaps truthfully!) of having stolen/scooped the proof-idea from so-and-so.

I think it's mostly taught for culture. That and because the concept of continuous rates of something is more immediately intuitive and easier to motivate than notions from other subjects. Calculus can also be taught in a satisfying way without the need for much formalism at all, whereas most other times you have to choose between "accessible" and "interesting"

At all events, your reply (1) is bullshit. This is not meant as an insult at you, but at the statute itself. After a little checking, I do see the "must have been published" language. But the relevant body is not Arxiv (your pic is unhelpful and irrelevant, now I do insult you a little bit); the relevant body for this particular question is the CMI, and their statutes. And their statutes, while obviously meant to discourage cranks, are still bullshit-a proof is a proof is a proof.

OTOH one (some person, theoretically) could establish and self-publish a proof, and THEN once its truth becomes clear to "the community", they could and would happily go through the formality of publishing in Journal X, to satisfy (bullshit) statute and later clear the road to the money. But of course people aren't interested in the problem itself for the money, it's just a nice theoretical bonus. True mathematicians are high-functioning autists who do not personally care much about money.

It's a function from C to C, Riemann made a formula that has to with prime distribution but it only works if the zeros of the Riemann Zeta Function has certain properties. Riemann said "I think the zeros has these properties, but I cant prove it", that's the hypothesis.

An extremely large amount of zeros has been computed and they all have this property but the proof that this holds for all zeros remains elusive.

My life fucking sucks. I get gangstalked all day everywhere I go. When I stay at inside, they park gangstalkers out side to gangstalk me through the walls. I'm completely impoverished. I'm completely indigent. My enemies enjoy impunity to do whatever they want, and they make a huge production of spending who knows how much money to follow me around int eh public spaces I am forced into by my poverty. I have a rape implant in my asshole that the gangstalkers constantly activate with their remote control, I have a pain implant in each of my feet, and apparently my enemies have awarded themselves the right to cut my body whenever they want to. I keep getting hypnotized into unconsciousness and then anally raped. I suffered anal trauma in jail earlier this year. I was able to pay a few months rent last year, then they sent a gnagstalker to be my roommate and he was constantly using his remote control for my anal rape implant to torture my. Then i spat in his face and got put on probation, and then they sent the exact same gangtsalker to be my probation officer.

I've been totally unemployed since January 2017 after I quit the gangstalking in my office exceeded what was I willing to accept. They do it even more now, but I don't volunteer for it. In fact, the gangstalkers whose torments were too much for me in that office in Atlanta have followed me to this seedy motel I'm staying in now and still doing their same shit. I literally cannot get away from them. All I can hope for is that one day I can repay them many times over the torment they've given me.

Unlike calculus

>> No.10659464

Do engineers really need to learn calculus and physics? I hear that most engineering jobs require knowledge of neither, and boils down to just coding.

I guess I'll already have like 10+ years of fake CS experience on my fake resume should I attend a fake university where I can't get a cookie for anything true that's on my real resume.

There's many writeups about this by professors, calculus is the perfect course to dump all incoming students into so they can re-teach them mathematics. Most highschools teach math completely incorrectly, and when you get to university they use Calculus to fix all your deficiencies and teach you general problem solving skills.
