Bishopsgate in London. An example of recent London architecture is visible (under construction) in the background — 30 St Mary Axe. It’s being build on the site of the Baltic Exchange, which was destroyed by an IRA bomb in 1992.

On NPR Weekend Edition today, Keith Devlin (more from Devlin here) was on. He’s written a new book, The Millennium Problems, in which he describes seven unsolved mathematical problems chosen by the the Clay Mathematics Institute of Cambridge, Massachusetts. CMI is offering a prize of one million dollars for each solved problem. The seven problems are: Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer Conjecture, Hodge Conjecture, Navier-Stokes Equations, P vs NP, Poincare Conjecture, Riemann Hypothesis, Yang-Mills Theory, and Rules etc. Good luck!
