Summary
For over 100 years 'The Poincaré Conjecture' was one of the most confounding puzzles. Invented by a French mathematician it was a theory that had the potential to describe the shape of the universe. It remained unproved & in 2000 the Clay Mathematics Institute identified it as one of the seven great conundrums of the new millennium
