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.

Here’s the full equation also from the original site.
This subject is of particular interest to me. This is not the fault of Indian newspapers. A Stage for Shadows.
Shouryya Ray and the press A German year shojryya 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. The father said that Ray never discussed the project with him and that he used math equations that are even beyond his reach. Newton math puzzle, a year old problem, solved by an Indian boy who lives in Germany.
Newer Post Older Post Home. Because it has attracted low-quality or spam answers that had to be removed, posting an answer now requires 10 reputation on this site the association bonus does not count.
This solution is implicit, therefore it has little use in actual calculations as you would need to numerically solve it in order to use it, shokryya might as well solve the differential equation numerically shouryay. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question. The first problem is to calculate the trajectory of a body thrown at an angle in the Earth’s gravitational field and Newtonian flow resistance. When you go to this page and you click the picture, it enlarges it.
Exact solutions similar to the one presented here have been known since in a paper I posted in another thread. This accepted answer on physics. An Interview with Dr. Everyone is simply running after the boy and his origin.
I would love to be wrong, but generally, that’s what these things are. Indeed, as shown in the reddit links in Zhen’s comment, the differential equation is easily solved by separation of variables and very simple algebra.
In another way, it is refreshing that somebody public thinks that mathematics is worth something.
Let us come back to problem 1 which was the starting point sshouryya the media stories. It is the most reputed high school student research competition in the sciences in Germany and the winners get good stipends and networking during their university studies.
Finding the general solution to this differential equation will find the general solution for the path of a particle which has a drag proportional to the square of the velocity and opposite in direction. Nepalese Physicists departing from Nepal for Fall Thank you for your interest in this question.
German society awarded the young man by giving him a prize for contribution to the science and labeled him as a genius.
He then validated his results numerically. No description of his work. Would you like to answer one of these soluion questions instead? Not two years — the first version was posted in May May 28 ’12 at We are left to see, what kind of discoveries will Ray make in the future. Second Place in the national competition Regional winner Regional winner for the best interdisciplinary project Two problems in classical mechanics have withstood several centuries of mathematical shouryga.
When he says average equation, he thinks that textbooks contain this approach and it is taught in third-year courses at the university. Here’s summmary of shpuryya I’m reading through the interwebs: The second problem is the objective description of a particle-wall collision under Hertzian collision force and linear damping.
So has he written an actual paper, and if so, will anyone get to read it? Category Archives for “Shouryya Ray”.
List of Nepali Physicists Aboard: Of course they show what the interest has been. Nevertheless all his steps are basically known to experts and we emphasize that he did not solve an open problem posed by Newton.
But it still is amazing, especially at such a young age. We hope that this small text gives the necessary information to the mathematical community, and that it allows the community to both put in context and appreciate the work of Shouryya Ray who plans to start a career in mathematics and physics.
Nepalese Physicists departing from Nepal in Fall Moreover, the theory of average differential equations yields that equation can be solved and that solution is presented in particular form. Doing Bayesian Data Analysis.
This might have misled Shouryya Ray who was not aware of the classical theory of ordinary differential equations. Thus the drag acceleration due only to friction is [the preceding should probably read “the impedance acceleration due to friction plus gravity is”]:
