If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at forums@fqxi.org with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

Video Description

Physics could help to solve the P versus NP problem, one of the seven millennium math problems presented by the Clay Institute in 2000. The idea is to construct a real-world NP computer, which has existed only as imagination so far, and show if it is equal to P computers—that is, ordinary computers.

Well, I learned something new today. Didn't even know what P and NP were until now. I'm studying computer engineering in college, so stuff like this is really relevant and interesting. So thanks for making this video!

Also, would you mind rating and reviewing my video? I attempt to generate interest in studying physics by showing how cool physics really is. http://fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/2148

Best of luck in the competition!

"P=NP" actually means that any problem whose solution can be efficiently verified by a deterministic or nondeterministic computer can also be efficiently solved by a nondeterministic computer.

So in order to prove P=NP, the nondeterministic computer would need to efficiently solve NP-Complete problems. That's a much higher bar than merely matching the performance of an ordinary deterministic computer, which a nondeterministic computer could easily do. It's too early to collect the million bucks.
