Let me confess my other love-it is mathematics. I still read mathematics books until to-day;and that is after more than 25 I left the university. I know this subject is hated by many, but please allow me to write a short blog with some links to my other mathematical webpages. When I was in form Six(A-level), I told my teacher that I wanted to be a mathematician. But I am not good enough ,so I became an engineer;-)
A few years ago( can't remember the year), I read the book on Fermat's Last Theorem.It was a pure mathematics problem that remained unsolved for 350 years!The problem was solved by one Princeton University researcher Andrew Wiles a decade ago. It was an enjoyable read but you need basic pure mathematics pre-U level to understand the discussion.
To-day, I read that another 100-year old problem called Poincare Conjecture is about to be solved by a Russian. If he could proved it, then there is US1million prize money for him. I like the money but I may take 200 years to solve it.So, I prefer to do other business to make money and read the books instead;-)
