There is no new theory. From my understanding he just solved two certain differential equations derived from very specific problem statements(models).

Nowadays one will simply use numerical simulations as they allow even more complex models, which often can not be solved analytically.

This speaks for the talent of the boy but won't affect the physics by any means. There might be greater things to be expected from him though.

IMHO of course.

I know there is no new theory but even these analytic solutions can help the simulations run more accurately.

Wow! I love it when brainy kids do amazing things. What's with all the subtle casual racism in this thread?

"His solutions mean that scientists can now calculate the flight path of a thrown ball and then predict how it will hit and bounce off a wall."

wow, another break thru in the field of squash and handball.

i would like to see also but abouth our time now i would say its a timeloop so its another reality than that of newton and his pazling motion ietc equations for these holographic s implementations i think

lol that's funny, I was actually born in India in a small rural town and moved to the States when I was 9. In that time, by the end of 3rd grade, I could fluidly solve Algebra II and was working my way into Pre-Calc. I was beyond dumbfounded when I started school here in 4th grade, and every one was struggling with fractions....

What an incredibly ignorant statement. Indians are head and shoulders above their counterparts in the United States in math and science.

I'd put the education level of a first year Indian University student up against the equivalent first year American University student any day of the week.


But it's not because they are Indian...

This is correct.

I estimate that the entirety of the average North American K-12 mathematical education can be compressed into a single book about 200 pages long, while being entirely comprehensible to a 10-year-old.

And blacks have great rythm.


Lol! I believe that race has little to do with it but how good is the education system has much more. the Asian population press for mathematics in their children s learning and far surpass the USA students at certain grade lvl.s due to the lack of good schooling.

The (special) natural ability I think comes from among the rare gifted of any race and sex.

i do believe that the great game of strategy chess was invented by indians just look at the variables in that game good on the lad !

If someone else doesn't find this absolutely hilarious, I live in a scary world.



High five?


If someone stars that post, I live in a scary world.

..Oh, wait

I totally agree 100% with this statement~!

and the reason is: so the 'bigger' universities can teach the 'higher' math....this just goes to show the USA, someone is definitely pulling the strings of the education system..

heck....even the Chinese go to school 12-14 hours a day and by the time they hit senior in high school, their nearly working on a bachelors !!

WOW~! I googled that and BAM.. here's pretty good link .. where was Chess inventedI always though that Chess was invented by the Persians or Russians ..

I'm sure you have access to Google.


Yeah, but a quick search didn't result in the information I was looking for and I got distracted

His theory would revolutionize thermodynamics and statistical physics and nuclear physics because all these fields involve the study of thermodynamics and kinematics.


Granted I haven't searched very thoroughly, but if you find it, please share! Thanks!

That seems to be your opinion, can you show me any proof of that? It seems he found a way to simplify it, not add anything to it.

Translating from German. I don't have access to his paper unfortunately.

The first sounds like: Ballistic trajectory with Newtonian friction.

The second: Particle-wall collision using Hertz contact model and linear damping.

Just on a side note. The first supercomputer was used mainly for ballistic computations.

Writing up the differential equations for both problems is left as an exercise for the reader.


You probably should have quoted the source for that, because when you don't it actually gives the impression that you are giving your personal take on the matter...Which you very well may be doing, but that is a direct quote from another source. This kid is a genius in my opinion. Mathematics is a subject that some people just have a knack for learning compared to other people. I had to struggle to get as far as I did with mathematics, and that is not even that far when comparing to what many, many other people can do.

What I have noticed with myself is that understanding a particular concept may be doable, but then remembering and then applying what was learned to something in the future can be difficult. That's my main problem.

Because I want to undermine his genius and manipulate the ATS folks. Evil me...

Here is the source:
jugend-forscht-sachsen.de...

The paper itself is available from TU Dresden I guess.

Thank God for google translate... unfortunately, it doesn't delve very deep into what he did, it merely states presumptions... but at least it tells what problem it was that he solved.
I'll just wait for the translated explanation that will surely come as soon as it's poured over by folks world wide
